Emerging Markets Webcast Set for October 18

Mark your calendar—on Tuesday, October 18, our emerging markets portfolio management team will be speaking on a webcast presented in conjunction with Advisor Perspectives. The “Broadening the Opportunity Set in Emerging Markets” webcast starts at 4:15 P.M. EDT.

Calamos Webcast: Broadening the Opportunity Set in Emerging Markets

With interest in emerging market equities on the rise, Calamos Co-CIO Nick Niziolek will explain how we seek to capture the growth potential of emerging market equities while managing volatility, and how to identify the most compelling opportunities.

Financial advisors will learn the benefits of:

  • Using convertible securities to achieve upside equity exposure with potential downside protection
  • Focusing on EM revenue sources as a driver of growth
  • Identifying thematic trends that support growth and provide resilience in choppy economic environments
  • Employing a benchmark-agnostic approach
