Leapfrog China to Frontier Asia



2 Dudes on Shark Tank Just Blew Everyone’s Mind

In a recent episode of Shark Tank, two sharp, young entrepreneurs revealed a fast developing technology that anyone can invest in. In fact, one of the show's "Sharks," Robert Herjavec, already jumped in and invested $750,000!

But that could just be the start. In fact, if some experts are right, this trend could be bigger than Apple and Microsoft combined!

Tech heavyweight Cisco is calling it a $19 trillion opportunity. Not only that, experts believe it could be 37 times bigger than the Internet. Click here to find out what the “Sharks” are buying.

This week’s Global Guru is written by my friend Carl Delfeld of Chartwell Asia. Carl is one of the most insightful observers of Asian economies in the United States. With global stock markets starting to make a comeback, Carl’s insights into the recovering economies of Asia are particularly timely.

Much of Asia has downshifted to a slower growth rate over the past four years.

According to International Monetary Fund data, nominal growth in gross domestic product (GDP), in U.S. dollar terms, in the Asia Pacific has fallen from 14.8% in 2011 to 1.2% today. In China, the slowdown over this time period was from 24.1% to 9.9%, and in India from 7.9 to 6.4%. In Japan, it fell from 7.5% to -10.6%.

Meanwhile, many other countries in Asia are zooming ahead. These “frontier” markets have many more motorcycles than cars on the road and some don’t yet have a McDonald’s.

Frontier markets offer investors a combination of value, huge upside and unique challenges. As giants like China run into growing pains, higher costs and negative returns, frontier markets are being propelled by a bit more political stability and easy access to modern communications, technology and capital. The simple smart phone has connected every citizen to the global economy as well as the free online education offered at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

My case for you to leapfrog over China to frontier markets is simple and powerful. Frontier countries are far behind developed countries like Japan and America, and are even playing catch up with countries like Thailand, South Korea and China. But they are catching up fast. Imagine a chance to invest right now in the China of 1980, when its wages were at rock-bottom levels and it exported in a year what it now does every day.

Meet Cassandra (she could make you rich)
It’s the powerful, predictive secret of the FBI, CIA, NSA, MI6, Israeli Intelligence, Google, Amazon, Lifelock, pro sports teams and more… And right now -- right here -- it’s finally available to everyday investors like you. We call it “Cassandra,” after the famous prophet of Greek mythology.

But when you start using it to score triple-digit wins of up to 528%, you’ll call it “the most incredible thing that ever happened to your portfolio.” To find out what the heck I’m talking about, just click here (there’s no obligation).

Youthful populations and the move of workers from rural areas to higher income jobs in the cities are supercharging growth in these economies. The median age in many of these countries is at the demographic sweet spot of 25 years, compared to 35 years in China and South Korea, and 45 years in Germany and Japan.

This explains the optimism driving families to open their first bank accounts and purchase new houses, washing machines, refrigerators, cars and better food and medical care. This, in turn, explains why big companies from Japan, China, America, Europe and South Korea are falling over themselves and each other to invest in frontier Asia. And it’s not just lucrative new consumer markets and rising tourism that’s driving this wave of capital, but the need to access the region’s ample natural resources as well.

Evidence of this optimism and cycle of growth is everywhere. Since 2009 and the cooling of its civil war, Sri Lanka’s GDP has surged 40% and is now double that of India on a per capita basis. The 12th-largest shopping mall in the world is in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and a $20 billion energy investment by Exxon Mobil in Papua New Guinea has the potential to double the size of its economy.

Having a slice of frontier Asia in your portfolio actually reduces risk and volatility. Why? Because these markets beat to their own drummer rather than just going up and down with world stock markets like most asset classes. But like maneuvering a motorbike in and out of chaotic traffic, investing in these frontier markets requires experience and steady hands.

You might consider the Asia Frontier Capital Fund (AFC) that I like for a number of reasons.

First, 45% of its portfolio is in consumer stocks that aim to capture the young and rising consumer class.

Second, I agree with the fund’s 30% top weighting to Vietnam and the intelligent strategy of investing in each country’s strengths such as tourism in Sri Lanka, mining in Mongolia, food companies in Vietnam and textiles in Bangladesh. Here’s the kicker: many of the companies in the portfolio have significantly lower valuations compared to similar emerging and western companies, making them attractive acquisition targets. As a bonus, the portfolio sports a nice 4.4% dividend yield to cushion risk.



#3 on this List Will Surprise You (World’s Most Powerful Financial Forces)
Recently, I was handed a piece of research from a trusted colleague, who just spent months compiling multi-sourced data with the goal of pinpointing the world’s most powerful “financial forces.” As expected, the U.S. and China rank #1 and #2… but when I read #3, I had to do a double-take.

It wasn’t Germany, or Japan or any other country for that matter. It was a single company! If this research was correct, this could be one of the true stealth plays of 2016, and the stock to be in for decades to come. Click here now for the full story.

This market is not crowded. There are only three other funds with a similar strategy in the world. And AFC has delivered the best performance of all frontier funds during the last three years.

AFC is up 33.2% versus the MSCI Frontier Asia index, which is down 2.8%, and the MSCI Frontier index, which is up only up 0.4%. In addition, AFC is the only frontier fund that was up in 2015. Finally, the related AFC Vietnam Fund is the best-performing Vietnam Fund there is.

Frontier Asian markets are on the move. Get onboard for a piece of the action.
