Please join VanEck portfolio Manager David Semple, Portfolio Manager of the VanEck Emerging Markets Equity Strategy, and the Investment Team as they take an in-depth look at the investment case for emerging markets. Some parts of emerging markets have shown, what we view as, relative strength in coping with effects of COVID-19, coupled with, what we believe, is a prevalent increase in transformative growth trends across a broad range of sectors and industries. We believe there is no doubt that the scale of digitization may provide excellent, structural opportunities for continued investment in innovative and disruptive companies in emerging markets. However, challenges exist in China’s relations with the world and the evolution of global relationships could significantly impact the landscape for emerging markets investing in the future.
