Rising interest rate yields in emerging markets could pose a risk for investors, Gemma Godfrey of Brooks Macdonald Asset Management said Wednesday.
Treasurys in select emerging markets that pose the greatest risk are those with the highest foreign ownership. Withdrawals could affect those economies, she said.
