Capital allocation and Preservation in Underdeveloped and Illiquid Markets

"Underrepresentation of institutional and retail investors in the Emerging and Frontier markets gives fund managers like Siamc a competitive advantage," according to the EmergingFrontiers.com team.
According to Kamalie, "We have been cautious about investing in markets where there is significant foreign investor influence and have high correlations to developed markets, such as Hong Kong. Those markets that have low correlations to the rest of the world are more interesting to us as they share in common the fact that there is little to no foreigner investor participation, which makes them less susceptible to capital outflows as a result of FED policy."
Kamalie spends his time off the beaten path, traveling to some pretty exotic places in search of investment returns.
"The Philippines and Kenya are countries where we are looking to do more; I will be visiting both in October for an extensive on-the-ground due diligence research trip," said Kamalie.
