Magda Branet, senior portfolio manager in the Emerging Markets Debt team at First State Investments will highlight the risks and opportunities seen in the asset class when she takes part in the Fund Selector Roundtable Paris on 11 February.

Among the factors being considered are the role of central banks, the slowing of China’s economic growth, and the degree to which emerging markets offer good economic fundamentals.

Currently it is challenging to talk about emerging markets, but there is significant dispertion in their performance and active management can help assess the relative valuations and technical differences, according to Branet.

Before joining FSI in February 2015, she pent 10 years with AXA Investment Managers in Paris.
