With emerging markets slowing and developed economies stagnating, investors are surveying the globe in search of new opportunities. These opportunities are being found in frontier markets -- economies that are relatively underdeveloped but with the potential for rapid growth and strong long-term returns for investors.
The remarkable economic growth in markets such as Cambodia, Ghana, Mongolia and Panama is being driven by a combination of global trends and national economic reforms. Investors seeking to benefit need to better understand the external currents fueling these advances, the policies supporting economic activity, and the potential risks.
The inaugural FT Frontier Markets Summit, chaired by senior Financial Times journalists, will gather top investors, business leaders, economists and advisors to discuss the most effective strategies for accessing growing markets, the key areas of opportunity, and the factors that need to be taken into account and managed to ensure sustainable growth.
