Frontier investing is gaining popularity as more pioneer investors are discovering the potential value in preemerging markets. Increasingly, global investors look toward the opportunities across Asia, where these markets represent some of the fastest-growing global economies. Investors are willing to accept high risks to pursue higher rewards in frontier markets around the globe. Because frontier markets in Asia are not correlated to the world’s developed economies, investors are able to diversify their assets and increase the potential of gaining high returns. Stability, free-market reforms, and foreign investors have advanced frontier investing and strengthened these underresearched yet fast-growing economies.
