Seeking Alpha is an excellent resource for investors to find news and current commentary about US-traded equity, bond, currency, and commodity markets. However, when it comes to emerging and frontier markets, this leaves out quality information about numerous (and often the best) investment opportunities in the emerging market space. I founded Emerging Market Insider to fill this void and inform investors of the vastly untouched market for overseas investors. This also explains why I have not published as many articles on Seeking Alpha lately as my latest materials covers different markets. Nevertheless, I will still publish content on here that can be directly traded on the NYSE.
Emerging Market Insider is the definitive source of financial market commentary for investors who both need to diversify out of US publicly traded securities and seek to gain exposure to the growth opportunities of emerging and frontier markets. ETFs and ADRs have become helpful in recent years to gain exposure in this sector, but it is simply not enough. Due to sufficient demand from local investors, the best equity issues often do not reach US capital markets.
Written by the some of the best institutional investment managers throughout the Asia-Pacific region, along with global emerging markets experts, Emerging Market Insider introduces American and foreign investors to the best stock, commodity, currency, and private equity opportunities in the emerging markets. Since these investments are not listed on US exchanges, investment bank research departments and brokers lack the incentive to investigate these companies, despite higher risk adjusted returns. Emerging Market Insider not only discusses investment opportunities, but also identifies the lowest cost and most efficient way to trade these markets. Most markets are still fairly accessible to globally minded traders and investors.
If you are interested in learning more about emerging markets or a fund manager/emerging market expert wants to become a contributor, check out the site. I look forward to feedback from readers of Seeking Alpha.
