Expert panelists from EMTA’s founding days to the present will discuss the following: 

  • Origins of EM debt trading in the early ‘80’s (and the impact of the Brady plan) to its current evolutionary state - is there just too much debt and how do we get to “life after debt”? 
  • How has the EM investor base changed, and how is the asset class now being viewed? 
  • The evolving role of the major banks, and the changing role of the rating agencies. 
  • The crises of the past vs more recent ones and how globalization and/or contagion has affected the market, including the Eurozone crisis and what can be learned from EM. 
  • Creditors’ rights and rule of law/enforceability of contracts – how have recent cases changed the way we look at this topic? 
  • Tools of crisis resolution in sovereign debt restructurings through international financial architecture, including CACs and the pari passu and creditor engagement clauses. 
  • The Argentina saga; the Eastern Europe impact; the Mexico upgrade vs Brazil downgrade and other LatAm countries; foray into frontier markets. 
  • The Asian debt crisis of 1998 and the impact of recent Chinese measures on Asia today. 
  • Increased volumes in local markets instruments, EM corporates and CDS on EM names…and more
