Boston, August 12, 2015 – After years of growing popularity as viable investment allocation options, emerging and frontier markets are now nearly ubiquitous investment options in 2015. They are tracked by hundreds of indices, and most internationally focused asset managers offer emerging and frontier market strategies. Market performance in the developing world is highly sensitive to geopolitical risk, however. As developed markets continue to recover and emerging ones are at risk for political and economic destabilization, what factors might prove disproportionately risky to market performance and volume?
