Overview

Where are the next decade's greatest investment opportunities? Veteran investor Marko Dimitrijevic argues that they can be found in frontier markets, which account for seventy-one of the world's seventy-five fastest-growing economies and 19 percent of the world's GDP. Yet many investors ignore them. Fueled by new access to technology and information, frontier markets are emerging even faster than their predecessors, making them an essential component of a globally diversified portfolio.

In Frontier Investor, Dimitrijevic shows through colorful case studies, compelling charts, and fascinating travel anecdotes that it is not only possible but prudent to invest in these unfamiliar and undervalued options. Dimitrijevic explains how frontier markets such as Nigeria, Panama, and Bangladesh are poised to follow the similar paths of Chinese, Indian, and Russian markets, which were considered exotic two decades ago. He details a strategy for how and where to invest, directly or indirectly, to profit from frontier growth. Dimitrijevic covers the risks, political and otherwise, of these markets, the megatrends that promise exciting investment opportunities in the coming years, and the prospects for countries beyond the frontier, including Myanmar, Cuba, and even Iran. Rich with experience and insight, Frontier Investor opens up a whole new world—and worldview—to investors.

Editorial Reviews

Michael Spence

Frontier Investor is terrific. This book is great for anyone interested in investing in the next frontier. It is also excellent for those who want to understand the growth potential and human consequences for these many diverse countries and their people. It is really brilliant and a tour de force.

Aleksander Kwasniewski

An inspiring point of view. Dimitrijevic's experiences across Europe, Asia, and Latin America make him ideally suited to tackle the investment challenges of this rapidly changing world.

General Stanley McChrystal

A fascinating primer for the investor, businessman, diplomat, or anyone else with an interest or duty to perform in the world's rapidly emerging 'frontier' nations and markets. Dimitrijevic's message, deftly delivered through a combination of insightful statistics, entertaining vignettes, and hard-won personal experience, comes through clearly: 'Do your homework and think broadly to understand the forces at play.' A must-read guidebook to the world's changing economic landscape.
