MENA Hotspot Report


Amid increasing uncertainty across the Middle East and North Africa, Dunia Frontier Consultants and Whispering Bell are now offering three weekly publications focused on addressing the risks and opportunities in the following key markets:

    • Iraq – Security and political risk issues are once again top of mind, yet the Iraqi market continues to present very appealing business opportunities for companies, especially in oil and gas, security, construction, real estate, and retail. We provide a weekly note with a top level analysis of current events, a political and economic overview including recent deals, and an in-depth security analysis of week’s issue areas and regions to avoid for USD 4,500 per quarter.


    • Libya – A weekly review of political and security trends in the holder of Africa’s largest proven oil reserves. We provide up to date analysis informed by years of experience managing corporate security and risks throughout the country. As an added bonus to our Libya subscribers only, customers can also opt in to our daily situation reports distributed seven days a week at no extra cost. This is a must have for regional security managers, reconstruction firms, international oil and gas companies, and others with business interests and assets in Libya all for USD 3,000 per quarter.


    • Syria – The ongoing conflict has become central to the security and political calculations of virtually all of its regional neighbors, with emerging security opportunities as well as longer term investment and business opportunities. We provide ongoing analysis of the security and political situation as it unfolds for USD 3,000 per quarter.

These reports are available to subscribers individually, or can also be purchased together as a bundle of all three reports for only USD 7,500 quarterly—a savings of USD 3,000!

In addition, if you purchase an annual subscription, of any of the reports, we will apply an additional 20% discount.

Dunia “Edge Market Watch”

Based off the popularity of last year’s Iraq-only research note, Dunia is re-releasing a bi-weekly “Edge Market Watch” that now covers key investment opportunities in Iraq, Libya, Angola, South Sudan, and Yemen.  Twice a month we will be providing identification and analysis of tradable opportunities within the leading edge of emerging markets economies.  These will NOT be political risk notes by any stretch, as we’ll be striving to bring on-the-ground market insights into ‘in play’ opportunities throughout these markets in a number of different asset classes—in public equities, private equity, secondary debt markets, and other country-specific instruments in O&G, real estate, telco, infrastructure, extractives, and others.  Tailored towards EMEA/MENA traders, asset managers, investment bankers, and treasurers, we aim to pull back the curtain a bit on what otherwise are generally impenetrable, yet high-growth, markets through on-the-ground reporting coupled with hard-nosed financial analysis.

This new market note will be published bi-weekly, with occasional “spot updates” given the occasional late-breaking news coming from some of our markets.

There will be 2 levels of subscriptions, both sold as year-long subscriptions.

“Standard” subscription, covers 24 bi-weekly reports, for 12 months of subscription, for $1100.

“Advanced” subscription, covers 24-biweekly reports for 12 months of subscription, 2 hours of analyst discussion time per month, and 10% off our occasional ‘deep dive’ reports we’ll be putting out roughly on a quarterly basis. (Please see below teaser on the Iraqi Private Sector Banking Report.)  This will go for $1500 per year.
