Featured Raw News Feed
#Africa: home of the most hopeful people on the planet. Not only is Africa the birthplace of civilization, but in many ways continues to fuel the growth of humanity. As a #FrontierMarket, Africa has far to go before it can have a role in major #CapitalMarkets. Nevertheless, Africa has a wealth of resources that more developed countries are now looking at with the Eye of Sauron.

Curated Twitter Lists
These are my emerging and frontier market resource lists. Special focus on investment opportunities. Check out $HLMOX and $BLSAX as examples of diversified funds in these markets. Full disclosure, I invest in these…
Africa Emerging Market Resources
Due to it’s status as a frontier market, investing in most African countries is not an option. However, there are several choices including: Africa $AFK, Nigeria $NGE, Egypt $EGPT, South Africa $EZA, and “GAfrica” $GAF.
Asia Emerging Market Resources
While there are many great ETF choices for investment in Asia, I typically do not focus on Central Asian countries such as Mongolia and Kazakhstan.
Options include: Emerging Asia $GMF, China $FXI, India $INDA, Southeast Asia $AXJL, Vietnam $VNM, Malaysia $EWM, Indonesia $EIDO, Philippines $EPHE, Thailand $THD, South Korea $EWY, Taiwan $EWT, Singapore $EWS, and Hong Kong $FHK.
Europe Emerging Market Resources
Latin American Emerging Market Resources
Brazil’s fall from grace, Mexico’s rise, the worst inflation on the planet, and the cartels… yep, that’s the Latin American investing environment.
Middle East Emerging Market Resources
Many look to Qatar and Pakistan as huge growth opportunities over the next ten years. Also, many are unaware that Israel has a venture capital market second only to the Silicon Valley.
From high tech hubs to abundant natural resources, the Middle East – for sure – offers some great investment opportunities. But with massive geopolitical issues, I’d tread lightly here.
But what about Iran? No ETF yet, stay tuned.
