NAPERVILLE, Ill., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- John P. Calamos, Sr., CEO and Global Co-Chief Investment Officer of Calamos Investments ®*, will be the featured speaker in an InvestmentNews Webcast Event on July 23 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time, titled "Emerging Markets: Aiming to Achieve Growth with Lower Volatility."
"Emerging markets have emerged. As a major contributor to the world's GDP, we believe they should no longer be treated as a tactical play but as a core allocation to a portfolio seeking long-term growth," said John P. Calamos, Sr.
Mr. Calamos will specifically address:
- The evolving trends driving opportunities in emerging markets and the Calamos outlook on how these trends will impact global growth in the years to come
- Why leading economists are recommending increased allocations to emerging markets—not as a satellite, but as a core strategic portfolio allocation
- Volatility and the importance of active, risk-focused management within this arena
