About Fixed Income Leaders Summit: Emerging Markets

Why This Event?

Emerging Market (EM) economies have undergone many transformations over the past two decades, as their share of world gross domestic product (GDP) has doubled from approximately 20% to 40% from 2001 to 2017.

In fact, Emerging-market bond funds have returned 6.41% over the past 12 months, compared to a loss of about 0.57% on long-term U.S. government bonds. Yet the EM fixed-income universe remains under-represented: although emerging economies account for 60% of global GDP, EM debt makes up just 11% of global bond markets.

Why? Transparency, liquidity, and currency risks in these markets remain major market challenges. But that is changing rapidly…in an age of tech disruption and innovation at every turn, falling behind can be more detrimental than ever – and will be even harder to catch-up.

Built From The Best

Worldwide Business Research (WBR) has been developing industry-leading events focused on capital markets since 2001. This includes our flagship conference TradeTech Europe, which has successfully followed the automation journey in equities over the last decade, and has remained the market leading conference growing to 3000 attendees in the US, Europe and Asia. We have now also successfully moved into other asset classes covering foreign exchange and more recently fixed income, and now, fixed income in the emerging markets.


Fixed Income Leaders Summit: Emerging Markets was spun out of the successful Fixed Income Leaders Summit in Boston, where 850 of the industry’s best and brightest now gather to uncover practical solutions to rise above the current market order. What started as a niche congregation of the Fixed Income elite in 2015, Fixed Income Leaders Summit is now the world’s biggest meeting place for Fixed Income innovators.
