Last week, Marko Dimitrijevic and Timothy Mistele, coauthors of Frontier Investor: How to Prosper in the Next Emerging Markets, have teamed up again to write about frontier markets. Dimitrijevic and Mistele are chairman and senior advisor, respectively, at Volta Global. Their most recent article appeared in The Hedge Fund Law Report, a publication on hedge fund law and regulation. The guest article, titled “Frontier Markets: Outsized Growth Opportunities Bring Legal, Compliance and Operational Challenges,” offers an overview and analysis of frontier markets with the editors at The Hedge Fund Law Report saying:
“Traditional distinctions between developed and emerging markets – the sizes of their economies and markets, their government and corporate policies and even their growth rates – have blurred significantly over the past decade, resulting in higher correlations between developed and emerging market equities. Thus, global investors seeking growth and diversification must now look to the “emerging” emerging markets, or frontier markets. Although frontier markets offer opportunities, investing in them involves various risks: political risk (something increasingly prevalent in developed markets), macroeconomic risk (e.g., inflation risk, currency risk, etc.) and microeconomic risk (e.g., liquidity, custody and settlement risks).
