Any thoughts from everyone about this ETF? There’s been some buzz about frontier markets in the past year… I think this is the first US-listed one. Have rebalanced my portfolio this year with 5% in it… mostly since I am using BRIC as a core instead of more traditional markets, and willing to take on more downside risk.
There are a lot more choices out there, but depending on what areas of the frontier markets you’re looking at, you’ll have to do some research. These are more focused on the MENA region: GAF, TRAMX, PMNA, GULF, and MES.
I personally am pretty intrigued by the long-term opportunites in Frontier Markets (as well as BRIC)!
