Investors believe emerging markets recovery is sustainable

As emerging markets show signs of recovery, research suggests investors expect this to be ongoing and not a flash in the pan.

NN Investment Partners polled 83 institutional investors in July and found that 40% believe the current revival in emerging markets is sustainable, compared to 22% who do not think it will last.

A third of those surveyed viewed emerging markets as being the most attractive geographical region for equity investment in terms of risk versus return over the next six months.

In a separate piece of research, the firm said Asia had been identified as having the most positive emerging market debt valuations, according to over half (56%) of the 86 institutional investors surveyed in August.

Further findings revealed that 37% of investors favoured equity investments in emerging markets, while 31% chose illiquid assets such as infrastructure, private equity and mortgages. The same number of investors also liked emerging market multi-asset total return as an asset class.

“We are seeing a growing buzz around emerging markets,” said Maarten-Jan Bakkum, emerging markets strategist at NN Investment Partners.
