LONDON & CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Fitch Ratings has launched an electronic newsletter called 'Emerging
Markets Quarterly'. The new publication will highlight topics of
interest from different sectors of the economy, with one or two articles
discussing Fitch's opinion and an investor interview providing the
market's view on these topics.
Due to investors' growing interest in expanding their investment
horizons towards the smaller and faster-growing economies within the
emerging markets spectrum, this first edition focuses on the more risky
subset of emerging market countries, also known as frontier markets.
In the first article, the agency discusses the differences between two
of the most prominent frontier market indices and provides its view on
selected countries included in these. Key rating factors that Fitch
considers for each sector are also highlighted. The second article
discusses Fitch's opinion with respect to the ongoing policy limbo in
In the 'market view' section of this edition, Violet Osterberg, Co-Head
of Specialty Investments at Pacific Life Insurance Company, shares her
expertise with regard to frontier markets.
In addition, the newsletter features commentary highlights and key
rating actions for the quarter, covering the corporates, financial
institutions, sovereigns, global infrastructure and structured finance
sectors within the emerging markets.
Additional information is available at 'www.fitchratings.com'.
