Frontier markets

Frontier markets

Also known as "pre-emerging markets", frontier markets are countries with investable, but less developed (read: more volatile), stock markets. Due to political instability, substandard financial reporting, and other inadequacies common in these markets, they are particularly attractive to investors looking for a high risk, high reward option to fuel their next adrenaline rush.

Once frontier markets improve, they move up to "emerging market" status. Congrats!
