Here is some history on Frontier stock markets.
Over a decade ago, the International Finance Corporation met and cobbled together the S&P/IFC Frontier Index. This frontier index measures the performance of stocks of 22 countries that admittedly are not quite on the top lists of global tourist, or investment, decisions or destinations. These frontier countries are from many regions of the work, and include Bangladesh, Botswana, Ghana and Ecuador. That being said, those who have dared to tread where others feared to invest reaped big profits. Merrill Lynch reported that the frontier stock markets have outperformed emerging and developed stock markets since the start of January 2000.
