Today, we update our Emerging Money Frontier Index (EMFI) for investors on the site. Frontier Markets

A quick look at the performance of Frontier Markets over the last year tells you that "taper tantrums," China (FXI, quote) credit, Emerging Market (EEM, quote) political headwinds, and currency fears in smaller economies cannot stop the growth of Frontier Markets and conviction of those focused on the asset class. 

Frontier markets have proven to be one of the best investments for equity plays on a year over year basis versus MSCI Emerging Markets (see EM vs FM ratio chart below) and even versus U.S. markets (see FM vs SPY ration chart).  

We see no reason to expect this trend to reverse, especially as ASEAN and sub-Sahara Africa regions continue to boom.
