With a changing political landscape, trade tensions on the rise and potential headwinds for global growth, investors in emerging and frontier markets face a new set of risks—but also remarkable opportunities.

Participants will join leading policymakers, investors, and analysts for an afternoon of interactive and lively debate about prospects across countries, regions, sectors, fixed income and equity markets.

Hosted by Exotix Capital, Fitch Ratings, and the Institute of International Finance, the program will cover a range of topical issues including:

• Political risk and economic growth in Latin America
• Infrastructure investment and financial market deepening in Africa
• Trade flows and investment opportunities in emerging Europe
• Geopolitical hazards, market liquidity, and the role of Saudi Arabia in the Middle East
• The impact of China’s Belt and Road initiative initiative on frontier and emerging markets in Asia as well as the implications of rising trade tensions and new demographic challenges
