Episode Description

Again this week, Gavin combines his own knowledge of emerging and frontier markets with the insights of expert guests. He will start with Patricia Oey from Morningstar Inc. for a look at passively managed emerging market funds, often called Exchange-traded Funds. He’ll also talk to Paul Harris about the gold rush in Colombia. Then he will hook up with European correspondent Mario Marcinek in Bratislava, Slovakia to check which frontier markets in Europe are -- and are not -- affected by recessionary conditions there. Next, he will talk to Baldwin Burges of Silkinvest for a briefing on investing conditions in Turkey, and whether the tumult in Syria has affected them. Gavin will wrap the program with Darren Vilardo in California about how you can use emerging and frontier market funds in retirement. This edition is produced by Al Emid.
