Welcome to a special week of content devoted to China, emerging and frontier markets.

This time around, our editorial decisions are informed by several key themes. In no particular order: supply chain issues, performance, and debt. We also wanted to look at some other topical issues too.

Ukraine is still technically a frontier market so look out for a speculative look at how technology will help it rise from the ashes should there ever be peace within its borders.

Furthermore, the World Cup is just months away, so keep an eye on Morningstar.co.uk for a look at the longer-term economic impact of the tournament on controversial host nation Qatar, itself an emerging market.

The final thing to say is this: you might consider it either brave or foolish to invest in emerging markets right now, given the warning lights flashing on the global economy, and the performance figures we’ll highlight across the key emerging markets indices.

But there’s no doubt that it’s one of the most exciting investment topics out there, even if you do decide to watch from the sidelines. If you’re making the decision yourself, then we’ll naturally have some content for you too.
