Asian frontier markets: the risks and potential rewards

Asian frontier markets: the risks and potential rewards

Where do we stand when it comes to exploring frontier markets in Asia, and what will it take for commercial LPs to feel more comfortable with them? Furthermore, how far up the risk scale should investors go in the chase for returns? Are some markets simply a frontier too far?

These crucial questions were among those raised at the recent SuperReturn Asia conference, where I joined a panel with fellow industry experts Genevieve Heng, Director at Anthem Asia (a Myanmar fund), Jason Bajaj, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at The Osiris Group (focused on emerging and frontier investments) and Christian Forthuber, Managing Partner at BRT Capital Partners (a Bangladesh-focused private equity firm).
