Hemant Baijal of OppenheimerFunds to share views on EMD at Nordic Summit
Hemant Baijal, head of Multi Sector Fixed Income, portfolio manager at OppenheimerFunds will discuss asymmetrical risk in emerging market debt that is locally denominated, when he takes part in the upcoming Nordic Summit Stockholm, taking place 12-13 March at the Grand Hotel.
Local EMD brings with it particular risk factors, and demands skills in limiting downside risk. To do this requires taking a particular view of tracking error, as a gauge of volatility, Baijal will explain.
