Dr. Vicente Pons, founder and owner of Frontera, said: "This acquisition is transformational for our operations as it adds further strength to our sales capabilities and specifically allows our products to be introduced to US investors. We are now also uniquely placed to expand our origination efforts confident that with an enhanced distribution platform in the US we will have access to a pool of sophisticated institutional investors who are seeking portfolio diversification and yield enhancement in global frontier market fixed income investments".
