The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the investment community to adopt and strengthen online tools to find and assess potential deals in frontier and emerging markets. Some of these innovations will probably stick around post-COVID, reducing barriers and transaction costs for investors and easing the flow of capital into markets that need it.
