A brilliant and entertaining book that teaches the why, how, and where to invest in the new emerging markets. Dimitrijevic is the grand master of frontier markets investing. Read this book. (Tony Robbins, best-selling author of Money, Master the Game: 7 Simple Steps to Financial Freedom)
A fascinating primer for the investor, businessman, diplomat, or anyone else with an interest or duty to perform in the world's rapidly emerging 'frontier' nations and markets. Dimitrijevic's message, deftly delivered through a combination of insightful statistics, entertaining vignettes, and hard-won personal experience, comes through clearly: 'Do your homework and think broadly to understand the forces at play.' A must-read guidebook to the world's changing economic landscape.

Marko Dimitrijevic writes about a fascinating topic with the depth that only someone who has done it for years can have.

An inspiring point of view. Dimitrijevic's experiences across Europe, Asia, and Latin America make him ideally suited to tackle the investment challenges of this rapidly changing world. (Aleksander Kwasniewski, former president of Poland)

I found this book very easy to pay attention to and understand. I never got bored (which happens often in investing books). The content is serious but is presented more in the form of stories and vignettes and examples. This kept my attention and I learned a lot.
I would love to visit some of these "frontier markets"; not as a leisure tourist but following the author's approach to get on the ground and see what is going on.
Aside from actually spending time on the ground in these frontier markets yourself, the only way to truly appreciate their potential and the massive changes taking place there are through the eyes and experience of someone who has. This book details those journeys and experiences with a rare combination of insight and tangible examples to give the reader a unique perspective into why these markets are important for every investor and follower of financial markets to pay attention to for decades to come.
Highly recommend this book.
I love books on investing, and I especially love books with charts. A picture is worth a thousand words. The first three chapters of this book each have six to eight charts—pie charts, bar charts, stacked area charts—which really help to visualize the points the author is making.
The population pyramids in chapter 4, though—I kept flipping back and forth between them. I had never seen these before. They are fascinating. Once I saw these, I understood why young countries like Nigeria and Bangladesh will have an advantage over aging countries like Germany and Japan (and soon Korea and China).
The central thesis of his book is that investors should allocate a portion of their portfolio to frontier markets because this is where the growth and opportunity are today and will be tomorrow. Marko supports this thesis well, and this book should convince investors to increase their exposure to frontier markets.
Marko is a true maven of markets; how they work, how to analyze them and how to profit from them. His breezy style of writing makes complex and deep market insights seem simple, obvious and understandable. Marko throughout the book tells readers how he analyzed actual markets and investments, and reveals the tools and processes he used in detail. There is a wealth of practical information in every chapter that can be replicated by other investors to invest not just in frontier markets, also emerging and developed markets.
Marko tells us about investments he made that did well as well as mistakes he made which makes the book more believable and approachable.
This book should be on the bookshelf of any serious investor and studied in depth.
I think I liked this even more; it gave me some really good hard facts to show how new markets can out perform the US/Europe markets I’m familiar with. And I found his case studies really made it easier to follow.
