Frontier Markets Overview

Frontier markets ETFs invest in the equity of companies outside of the developed and emerging economic development categories. These developing countries are usually considered too small to be emerging markets, and their financial markets are too illiquid for investors. They are considered the riskiest markets, but many analysts believe there are pricing inefficiencies that investors can take advantage of.
