This interactive discussion with emerging markets investment specialists, Dr. Carlos Asilis and Darshan Bhatt of Glovista Investments, subadviser to the Virtus Glovista Emerging Markets ETF (NYSE Arca: EMEM), explored the convergence of emerging and developed markets, and how investors may wish to position their long-term, global equity portfolios to pursue the growth potential of the “most favored” emerging markets countries. The webinar included a detailed discussion about: 

  • Glovista’s view on recent emerging market (EM) weakness and the outlook for 2019 and beyond;
  • The macroeconomic factors underlying the realized and prospective growth of EM economies;
  • The pitfalls of market capitalization-weighted EM indices; and
  • Why country-specific analysis is critical to assessing opportunities in EM.
