You’ve no doubt heard of the BRICS countries, the emerging market quintet comprised of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
Now, in an excellent post published on Seeking Alpha, Belgrad Kenne, Founder and Director of equity research firm, Phase One Associates, has coined a new acronym that captures the dynamism of Sub-Saharan Africa’s frontier economies – the KINGs (Kenya, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and Ghana).

He graciously agreed and also shared his thoughts as to why he believes these markets make for a compelling investment opportunity.
