Slim Feriani, chief executive officer and chief investment officer of Advance Emerging Capital, says he is targeting a portfolio turnover of no more than 30% for his frontier strategy this year and believes that the trend of listings and capital-raising will continue to accelerate. "In the next five to 10 years we are bound to see more IPOs. As it stands, some of the hidden gems are still in private hands," he says. Mr. Feriani, a Tunisian by birth, acknowledges that the Middle East and Africa region will be affected when the world's central banks begin to raise interest rates. However, he still believes more capital will flow into these markets despite what he describes as "speed bumps along the way."

Slim Feriani, CEO of boutique manager Advanced Emerging Capital, agrees that first-mover advantage is a key attraction. "The commonality across all the frontier markets is that they are probably the most under-researched and underinvested countries globally. That's where the opportunity is because that can only change," he says.
