We can add another year to the history books. Frontier markets ended 2014 with a return of 17.4% in SEK terms (MSCI Frontier Markets xGCC Net). The past year became the third year in a row of rising prices in SEK terms. The positive return however is explained by the weaker Swedish Krona and in USD terms frontier markets fell 3.2% during 2014.
• Tundra’s global frontier fund, Tundra Frontier Opportunities Fund, returned 29.8% during the past year and hence outperformed the benchmark index by 12.4%. Since inception in April 2013 the fund has returned 50.8%, 21.3% better than the benchmark index.
• The best performing fund in 2014 among Tundra’s range of funds was however Tundra Pakistanfond with a return of 60.6% (benchmark return of 35.2%).
• With the oil price hitting new lows, oil importing Asian frontier markets such as Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan were among the top performers during the past month.
