Edited by Panagiotis Andrikopoulos (), Greg N. Gregoriou and Vasileios Kallinterakis

in Elsevier Monographs from Elsevier, currently edited by J. Scott Bentley

Abstract: Handbook of Frontier Markets: The European and African Evidence provides novel insights from academic perspectives about the behavior of investors and prices in several frontier markets. It explores finance issues usually reserved for developed and emerging markets in order to gauge whether these issues are relevant and how they manifest themselves in frontier markets. Frontier markets have now become a popular investment class among institutional investors internationally, with major financial services providers establishing index-benchmarks for this market-category. The anticipation for frontier markets is optimistic uncertainty, and many people believe that, given their growth rates, these markets will be economic success stories. Irrespective of their degrees of success, The Handbook of Frontier Markets can help ensure that the increasing international investment diverted to them will aid in their greater integration within the global financial system. Presents topics in the context of frontier markets and uses tests based on established methodologies from finance research Draws from authors who are established university academics Pays particular attention to financial institutions and applications of financial risk models Explores finance issues usually reserved for developed and emerging markets in order to gauge whether these issues are relevant and how they manifest themselves in frontier markets
