Jason Williams, portfolio manager/analyst at Lazard Asset Management, will be outlining his views of emerging markets when he joins the upcoming Nordic Summit Stockholm 2019, hosted at the Grand Hotel on 12-13 March.

Still an asset class that requires consideration of risk beyond developed markets, it has nonetheless broadened over the past three decades, with long term returns being relatively strong.

But a sophisticated approach to ESG, strong risk controles and a style neutral approach are the factors that can deliver more consisten returns, Williams will explain.

Williams, who works as a portfolio manager/analyst on Lazard’s Equity Advantage team, began working in investments in 2001. Before joining Lazard in 2008, he was a quantitative portfolio manager in the Pan European Active Equities group at SSgA. He has an MA in Finance and Investment from the University of Exeter and a BSc Honours in Mathematics from Coventry University. He is a CFA charterholder and member of the UK Society of Investment Professionals (UKSIP).
