Since the invasion of Ukraine on February 23 we have seen Russia's stock market crash, the currency tumble and wrangling over the prospect of the nation defaulting on its debt.

Russia, the biggest country in the world, continues to dominate the headlines, as its actions have also sent energy, oil and commodity prices up.

Meanwhile another emerging market giant, China, has been impacting the performance of the EM sector, as it suffers a slowdown in growth, driven by its zero-Covid policy.

Despite all this, investors can still find opportunities in various emerging market regions, while new avenues are opening up.

This report, which will look at the issues affecting emerging markets and opportunities for investors, comes with 30 minutes' CPD.
