this is bloomberg. mark: let's turn to emerging markets. our next guest says we need to pay attention to transition, transition is the most important. talk us through this. guest: we have reached an inflection point. the election of trump is not the first one. then you get the fundamentals. we are transitioning from austerity to fiscal stimulus. how does that play out.
this is the trump election. we have gone from traditional politics to populism and populism is coming to europe as well. how do you price that in the u.s.? we are going from globalization to isolation. and we're going from volatility subsidy to normalization. you put everything together, it's going to be a difficult market with a lot of rotation. convictions are going to be a big debate. you need to make sure you are in
liquid instruments and the volatility might take you offside on your position. a very difficult transition here where you have transition, transaction costs and a trump premium. you recognize investors take place into this great migration. does the presidency change that call? guest: it makes it less directional. both of them are important for emerging market fixed income. premiumar under a trump , we don't know if it's a flight to quality or will continue to rally. the main variable emerging market managers are used to
pricing as well, idiosyncratic risk in politics. what does it mean? -- this is what the market is buying today. you have a three-year input that might happen out of the blue. you could get some confrontation and with emerging to build aaders tend relationship with their own people and bypass congress. through, this happens
social media where they have this relationship can indication and that might set a lot of volatility in the market. youie: in the countries deal with, which one is extraordinaire really related to the united states and which can you trade a little divorced from this particular story? any of them have seen on of their difficulties solved the last few months. i'm thinking brazil in particular. guest: this is very important when you look at two things that are important. a lot of leaders have to their homework and make sure they are managing not a bonanza, but commodity exporters. is veryfiscal policy
important for commodity exposure because you are not going to find copper in the u.s. like this. if you want to go ahead with the fiscal plans, you need to make sure the commodities might be difficult for manufacturers. if you compare america versus aazil, this is where you see totally different picture. the last time i saw you, i told you it was time to be selective. commodity exposures and mexico, south africa, turkey the ones -- these are that got a lot of crossover the situation will be going forward. plenty more central banks meeting thiseek. do you need to wait to see what
they do before making any other decisions about what to buy? guest: i think central banks are in a situation to cut rates and stimulate their own economy. they are not in the driver's seat and make sure where the dollar lands with respect to the currency. how much inflation do they import? what are the balances of flows? is there a lot of dollar repatriation coming back to the u.s.? going from a hiking cycle. might just step aside and give you the time. black rock's head of emerging markets joins us in just a few seconds. we will get his take on portfolios and decisions in the air. in the broadcast,
the key variables you need to take into account is where is the dollar going to go and where our u.s. treasuries going to go? those are the most difficult questions to answer. what is important is as we go back to this trinity, the transition in fixed income is very important because how the hell are you going to make money in fixed income going forward if you are exiting the bonanza years of qe? it's going -- how you position your portfolio, if you are longer credit with a very thin spread and might not pick up another selloff or steepening of go torve, you need to high yields. this is where emerging markets offer a buffer because we are trading around 6.5% and we have
taken a small hit. this is good for emerging markets to reprice quickly. the next one might be a bit more violent. think about the fiscal stimulus scenario we are in, you want to be long commodity exporters. these are the guys paying very juicy yields. if you think about russia, dan, brazil -- russia, because extend, brazil -- then you have flows and you want to be liquid. don't want to be rotating liquid stuff, so you're going to focus on that. --ention russia and brazil if you go down the liquidity and go more into the corporate side, you make sure you want to hold
these materials. the corporate market offers and adjusting composition between spread and duration. is going to fare much than theth pricing long duration on the local debt. do you need to do bottom of analysis or can you treat this as a macro type of trade where you can take industries and companies just based on what they do? the bottom-up analysis needs to come at the end of your asset allocation. if you say am going to go along commodity exporters, which are the ones that offer the best value, this is where you decide from the bottom up. what we are going to define is the structure. the structure of your portfolio
is long high-yield, hedge with treasuries, very liquid and all your bets have to be a small size so you can bear the volatility. this is where we are positioning our constraint fun so we can absorb the volatility without being in a situation where you cannot handle it anymore. once you have defined that structure or portfolio, this is see whatwhere you can is going on and get most of the juice. mark: thank you for being with us. the black rock head of emerging markets. vonnie: coming up, we will hear what jeremy corbyn thinks of his government's report for business, brexit, politics in europe, and of course, president-elect donald trump. this is bloomberg. ♪
