The EM perspective

The past weekend gave investors a pause to reflect on what has been the worst week in terms of price performance for many equity indices since the global financial crisis in 2008. For example, the S&P 500 lost 11.5% on Friday’s close, compared a week before. Emerging markets equity investors were also strongly impacted, as the MSCI EM lost 7.3% over that period.

Get Social, ‘S’ from ESG, wrong and a company stands to lose customers and employee loyalty, and damage value of the business. The priority of owners in how socially responsible investments are made, and the expected returns, are key. Liquid markets can deliver rapid change in ownership. Can the two coexist?
