Not enough investment capital is flowing into emerging and frontier markets despite potential for strong returns and the opportunity to help the world’s poorest communities, according to a recent report from the Global Impact Investing Network.

“Unlocking the Potential of Frontier Finance” found “that investors require more clarity” about how “to address the challenges” of investing in these markets and the opportunities for success.

“There are a lot of vulnerable populations that could benefit from the companies that receive this capital, and from the strengthening of supply chains that comes along with impact investment,” said Rachel Bass, research manager at GIIN and the report’s lead author, told Karma.
