Frontier Market Funds and Fund Companies
May 15, 2013
Hosted by Gavin Graham
As in each edition, Gavin will combine his own knowledge of emerging and frontier markets with the insights of expert guests. He will lead off this edition with James Awad for a look at what’s going on with emerging markets funds. He’ll also talk to Paul DeSisto about investing in the Far East and then he’ll have Larry Speidell on the line to look at how smaller fund companies compete with major companies for your investment dollars. His expert interviews include Pradipta Chakrabortty about why he believes in frontier funds. He will have Baldwin Burges on the line from Belgium to talk about Turkey, an emerging market that sometimes gets overlooked due to the emphasis on the BRIC’s. He’ll talk to European correspondent Mario Marcinek for a look at which areas of Europe are – and are not – most directly affected by the recession. Some frontier markets are better off than some developed countries. This program is produced by Al Emid – for inquiries please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
