The fund will invest across the full range of emerging markets debt instruments, including companies and countries of any credit rating or currency. It is a Luxembourg- domiciled Sicav available through the Allianz Global Investors platform.

“We firmly believe that strong economic-growth prospects, favourable demographics and markedly improving fundamentals mean that emerging markets debt is set to perform over the longer-term, despite any liquidity risk from a rise in US interest rates or country-specific geo-political tensions,” said Greg Saichin, CIO of AllianzGI’s Emerging Market Debt business.

The Allianz Emerging Market Debt franchise was launched in October 2013, it has now 10 members including portfolio managers and analysts based in London, New York and Hong Kong.

The fund is currently available to institutional investors in the UK and will be made available to retail investors later this year.
