"I find Frontera's perspective on frontier and emerging markets to be both valuable and informative. They report hard facts 'on the ground', without an editorial agenda. Truly a rare find."

“Refreshingly original coverage on neglected outposts of the developing world. In an investment world full of the same voices trending toward the same ideas, Frontera gets points for its courage to be different.”
