VanEck's Emerging Markets Fixed Income Investment Team seeks exposure to emerging markets fundamentals, generally characterized by lower debts and deficits, higher growth rates and independent central banks. The strategy can invest in debt securities that are issued by governments, quasi-government entities or corporations, and that may be denominated in any currency, including those of emerging markets. Eric Fine, a veteran of emerging markets, is the primary portfolio manager and is supported by economist, Natalia Gurushina, deputy portfolio managers, Carlos Nogueira and David Austerweil, and senior corporate analyst, Robert Schmieder.
