New fund: Danske Invest Emerging Markets Debt Hard Currency

Danske Invest launches a fund investing in emerging market government bonds.

Danske Invest is expanding its fixed income product range with an emerging markets debt fund.
Danske Invest Emerging Markets Debt Hard Currency invests primarily in government bonds and bonds issued by government owned enterprises. The bonds are generally in USD or EUR. Currency risk is hedged to EUR.

Emerging market economies are characterised by high growth rates, but still low income per capita.
While the 1980s and 1990s saw emerging market economies plagued by a series of crises, a lot of progress has been made since then – both economically and politically.

“When the global financial crisis unfolded in 2008, emerging markets recovered more rapidly than their developed counterparts, because emerging market countries could afford to pursue expansionary monetary and fiscal policies. That was not possible 15 years ago,” says First Vice President Bent Lystbæk, who heads the team managing the fund.

The fund may involve a high credit risk, as it can invest in bonds with a credit rating below BBB/Baa.

The fund is accumulating.
