Emerging markets face a multitude of risks stemming from high external borrowing costs, stubbornly high inflation, volatile commodity markets, heightened uncertainty about the global economic outlook and the war in Ukraine.
The risk of contagion – a “domino effect” of sovereign debt or institutional defaults after a particular trigger – is real, as evidenced by 2011 sovereign debt crisis in Europe, and most recently in the crypto world. Governments and multilateral institutions like IMF and various Development Banks have worked together to lower to sustainable levels the external debt burdens of the most heavily indebted poor countries.
Development Banks can efficiently employ their resources and expertise to reduce various risks associated with emerging markets and developing economies financial assets, in order to attract private investors that would not otherwise have provided funding.
This expertise needs to be underpinned by a robust and proven technology that allows financial institutions to see and understand various financial markets risks (most importantly: counterparty credit, interest rates and liquidity risks) holistically, and in time to be able to protect themselves from the risk of contagion.
