    A Familiar Problem For Emerging Market Bond ETFs

    The iShares J.P. Morgan USD Emerging Markets Bond ETF (NASDAQ: EMB), the largest exchange-traded fund tracking developing world debt, is down about 5.6 percent this year and it's not hard to explain why.

    The dollar rally is punishing emerging-market bonds, after year of record issuance

    Emerging-market bonds are reeling as a result of the dollar’s rebound, which is putting a strain on countries and corporations that found it difficult to resist issuing debt in the U.S. currency. “The dollar remains the single most important consideration for EM finances,” said James McCormack, global head of sovereigns for Fitch Ratings. Issuing dollar-denominated debt instead of government paper in local currencies can often result in cheaper borrowing, as risk-averse investors paid a premium for receiving interest payments in the more stable greenback.

  • How Emerging Market Bonds’ Real Yield Helps Curb Inflation Risk

    How Emerging Market Bonds’ Real Yield Helps Curb Inflation Risk

    Real yields are nominal yields adjusted for inflation, which is often one of the greatest contributors to the nominal yield levels of emerging markets local currency bonds. These higher nominal yields provide compensation for the risk posed by local inflation, which can be associated with negative currency returns. Controlled inflation can provide support to local currencies, and when combined with relatively high nominal yields (therefore resulting in positive real yields), fixed income assets may be particularly attractive.

    Why Should Investors Focus on Real Yield in Emerging Markets?

    Real yields in emerging markets (or EM) have remained at compelling levels over the past few years even as they continued to decline in developed markets, and even as nominal yield levels declined in some EM countries.
