Keynote: Incorporate black clouds of risk when capturing growth in EM



Emerging Markets are full of undiscovered opportunities and hope. Analysts can get stary-eyed in the face of exciting growth stories and downplay major risks in an effort to show conviction, leading to flawed decision-making.


While assuming failure may seem a counter-intuitive way to invest in growth, a pre-mortem methodology that does exactly that, can act as a discipline to ensure scrutiny of all the risks a company faces. It is an effective way to avoid behavioural biases and objectively value companies, ensuring the black clouds of risk are incorporated into every blue sky story
