Attractive yields with bonds from Ecuador, Surinam and Papua New Guinea – how can one achieve that?
All three countries belong to the so-called frontier markets, i.e. they are on the verge of becoming emerging markets. The term usually goes hand in hand with robust growth potential, a strong drive for reform and low valuations. This offers interesting investment opportunities for expert investors and active managers. As contrarian investors and early movers, we in the Emerging Markets Team at MainFirst not only observe emerging markets such as Brazil, China and India, but also frontier markets such as Surinam, Papua New Guinea and Ecuador – and their growth potential.
