The Next Frontier?

An interesting article in Smart Money (subscription required for online version), discussing The Next Frontier.  As the article notes:

“…finding investing opportunities sheltered from the fits and starts of the global economy requires going off the grid. Way off, in fact. Countries like Nigeria, Kazakhstan and Qatar are developing tradable markets, prompting adventurous investors to break out their pith helmets.

“People have become more and more comfortable investing outside the U.S.,” says Todd Henry, emerging-markets specialist at T. Rowe Price. “Now people are saying, ‘Where else can we go?'”

It goes one to discuss markets such as Jamaica, Mauritius, and Lithuania and contrasts the growth in such frontier opportunities versus the more traditional emerging markets such as Brazil, India, and China.

Wildcats & Black Sheep is a personal interest blog dedicated to the identification and evaluation of maverick investment opportunities arising in frontier - and, what some may consider to be, “rogue” or “black sheep” - markets around the world.

Focusing primarily on The New Seven Sisters - the largely state owned petroleum companies from the emerging world that have become key players in the oil & gas industry as identified by Carola Hoyos, Chief Energy Correspondent for The Financial Times - but spanning other nascent opportunities around the globe that may hold potential in the years ahead, Wildcats & Black Sheep is a place for the adventurous to contemplate & evaluate the emerging markets of tomorrow.
