Frontier Markets

Though not to the standard of emerging markets, frontier markets offer corporations and businesses the opportunity of trying to invest in a potential market before the market achieves significant growth. Frontier markets meet one or more of three criteria: being too small to be considered an emerging market, having investment restrictions removed in the past decade, and having a slower rate of development than emerging markets. Some of the more notable frontier markets include Argentina, Pakistan, and Vietnam. Perhaps the easiest way to get in on frontier markets is through ETFs such as Claymore/BNY Mellon Frontier Markets ETF (NYSEARCA:FRN) which specializes in frontier markets.
