Vital to monitor EM developments to uncover future opportunities: Schroders

SINGAPORE (Nov 15): The dynamism and structural growth story of emerging market (EM) equities may play a crucial role in helping investors meet their goals, according to a recent report by Schroder Investment Management (Singapore).

In the view of Schroders investment writer Andrew Rymer, the widely-followed MSCI Emerging Markets Index, which comprises 24 emerging market (EM) countries, provides a good gauge of the opportunity set available to global investors.

Why Bank of Singapore is remaining cautious on equities

SINGAPORE (March 14): Bank of Singapore (BoS) is maintaining its moderately defensive asset allocation stance with a preference for credit over equity, as a Fed hike in March is “all but certain” with two more hikes forecast to occur by end-2017.

“Although the market has not priced three hikes by end-2017 yet, the gap between the Fed’s median dots –  which have currently three hikes in 2017 and another three hikes in 2018 – and market pricing has started to narrow,” observes BoS investment strategist James Cheo in a Monday report.
