Having developed in line with globalising capital markets and the growing sophistication in financing requirements in emerging markets, the division has built a deep understanding of the market dynamics in countries with rapidly developing economies.
Together with our specialist product expertise, strong local capacity and global distribution reach, this understanding allows us to provide customer-focused solutions relevant in financial systems with different levels of maturity, and in markets at different stages of development.
We have invested significantly in growing our capacity in strategically important countries and regions, while also strengthening our specialist product teams and global distribution capability.
