Emerging Market Workshop


Book this Emerging Market workshop from Gugin. We will share all our experiences and recommendations we have gathered through working all over the world for the past 18 years

New perspectives on Emerging Markets that is affecting the Global Economy

This 1-day workshop is not about invesment ideas or recommendations. Instead, it is about understanding global macroeconomic forces and trends to enable global business traders, investors and market analysists to better understand the marekt forces at play, in particularly at emerging and frontier markets. This workshop attempts to make a compelling case that, just as today’s global business traders and well- rounded investment portfolios include mature markets and some emerging market exposure, tomorrow’s opportunities must include increasingly more focus on emerging and frontier markets. More importantly, this workshop will alert participants to the vast opportunities and potential pitfalls of investing in emerging, and more specifically, in frontier markets while providing a case to better understand the microeconomic profile of these markets when researching and investing in the most promising emerging and frontier growth markets. Widely considered to be the next emerging markets, frontier markets, such as those of certain sub-Saharan African, Eastern European region, Asian, and Central and South American countries, are showing strong signs of reaching economic critical mass.
