Frontier Funds Media & Intelligence
Frontier Funds Media & Intelligence exists to draw responsible investment flows through advancing a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the Frontier and Emerging Markets of Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas.
Through constant proactive engagement with the world’s most influential journalists, broadcasters, events organisers, researchers and investors, Frontier Funds connects people with ideas.
Every day, Frontier Funds identifies themes that help build awareness of the true socioeconomic and investment landscape by channeling its own insights and those in its network through news and research reports, features, broadcasts and opinion editorials.
Frontier Funds consistently challenges the bias of international journalists and investors in categorizing frontier and emerging markets as inherently high-risk and volatile. Frontier Funds provides context, data and analysis to local journalists, analysts and investors to help engender sophisticated and constructive commentary.
The rich and high profile editorial content generated empowers unique marketing capabilities that deliver thought leadership and precision messaging endorsed by the world’s most respected newspapers, broadcasters and conference platforms across the social media and digital marketing spectrum.
Frontier Funds was named Best Marketing & Communications Consultancy 2017 by a panel of judges that included senior executives from KPMG, the South Africa Venture Capital Association, private equity manager Phatisa Group, impact investors Eighteen East Capital and Brightmore Capital, and researchers at the University of Strathclyde and DeSaque, as published in Africa Global Funds magazine.
Frontier Funds was founded by Gavin Serkin, a prominent writer, broadcaster and commentator for over two decades. Serkin’s book, Frontier, was acclaimed as a “must read” by the Financial Times. Gavin’s work leading Bloomberg’s teams of journalists uncovering the world of derivatives that triggered the global financial crisis won him the Society of American Business Editors & Writers’ Best in Business Award and the Society of Professional Journalists’ Deadline Club Award.
