Frontier Opportunities

Featuring Larry Speidell

Frontier markets specialist Larry Speidell favors a “boots on the ground” approach to his investments, and takes time out to visit the many countries in which he’s investing. Larry argues that far from being risky, a mix of frontier market investments can reduce portfolio volatility by targeting strong idiosyncratic stories that the majority of investors will simply overlook.

    Excellent! I'm a sovereign analyst and found several interesting tidbits in Speidell's coverage of Nigeria, Bangladesh, and Romania. Well worth the 22 minutes.

    Informative, educational and tightly edited. Photos and footage were colorful and vibrant and like nothing we see on mainstream TV. Well done.

    Isn’t Bangladesh one of the countries most vulnerable to now inevitable sea level rise?

    Gave it a thumbs up but it was cut weirdly, like Max Headroom. The vignette filter blurry pictures were equally distracting and also took away from the content.

      Wouldn't be surprised but warranted, there were some moronic and rude comments, completely unnecessary. Good video, I liked it. Surprised by stats at front end and very informative.
