Welcome to First Frontier
First Frontier Capital is the first truly pan-frontier investment bank. Operating from our London headquarters, supported by an extensive network of local partners, we provide investors with a single point of access to investment opportunities in the geographically diverse range of frontier markets. We believe current investor appetite for frontier markets mirrors the enthusiasm felt for emerging markets over two decades ago, when they first opened up to overseas investment. We help uncover investment opportunities whilst navigating issues such as liquidity, information flows and a lack of in-depth research.
