- What could be the wider impact on the global economy?
- The social and economic disruption caused by the pandemic has exacerbated change and accelerated certain trends, which has benefited some industries. How are institutional investors harnessing some of those changes for long-term growth?
- Over the past 30 years, China’s income per capita went from being less than India’s to almost six times larger. Can India emulate China’s huge growth trajectory in the coming years?
- Are emerging market economies making progress on improving their governance and setting more stringent environmental standards?
- Environmental, social and governance considerations can be a bigger issue in emerging economies where capital markets and institutions may be less well-developed than in their developed-world peers. How are institutional investors and their managers using their sustainable capabilities and processes to assess emerging market investments?
