Wouter Van Overfelt, senior portfolio manager at Vontobel Asset Management, will outline some investment opportunities arising from Emerging Markets Corporate Debt at the InvestmentEurope Milan Forum to be held on the 8th of March at the Four Seasons Hotel based in the Italian financial hub.

Vontobel emerging-market strategies offer investors access to the emerging corporate bond universe, and thus the potential to capture attractive growth rates and yields.

Prior to that, he headed the business control of the central portfolio management unit within Gaz de France (GDP) Suez.

In this role he was responsible for the management of bond funds and the development and back-testing of trading strategies and quantitative models.
