BNP PARIBAS ASSET MANAGEMENT - PV bond best selection world EM 1440x300

Parvest Bond Best Selection World Emerging

Our broadest emerging market fixed income fund, run on a total return approach, utilising local and hard currency and corporate bonds.


Emerging Markets Fixed Income (EMFI) is a large asset class with breadth and depth, amounting to USD 19.4tn*. This asset class provides diversification benefits. As interest rates and volatility levels rise from historic low levels, not all EMs will benefit uniformly. A significant difference in performance within EM asset classes provides active managers more security selection opportunities with the aim to generate performance above benchmark.


Moreover, valuations of emerging markets look compelling on an absolute basis and relative to developed markets.
