Frontier Markets (i.e., the ones you don’t own)
06 July 2017
Frontier Markets may be the least-understood corner of the global equity map. Investors often have little
appreciation of (and no allocation to) these under-researched markets. So what are the Frontier Markets? In short,
they are the ones that you probably won’t find in your current Emerging Market Equity Fund. I will identify some
of the reasons why that is the case and show how those are the very reasons to get interested in Frontier Markets.
Despite their relatively small size and underdeveloped status, Frontier Markets represent one of the most attractive
opportunities for growth and diversification available in the current global environment.
