1. What’s the case for frontier markets today?

Frontier markets provide a high growth opportunity, in terms of economic growth, with low correlation to global asset classes and global equity markets. This is because frontier markets tend to be driven by domestic reform processes, rather than by global factors, and therefore, correlations between different frontier markets tend to be very low. As an overall asset class, correlations to emerging and developed markets tend to be around 0.5, and therefore act as a very good diversifier within any global folio.
