About us

FMR, also known as Frontier Myanmar Research, was incorporated as a Myanmar limited company in 2014. Its parent company is Frontier MEA Ltd, a privately-owned UK firm established in 2009 which specialises in business and investment research in frontier markets.

We produce a range of custom and subscription based research services used by private-sector and public sector clients, with a focus on undertaking original, on-the-ground research in environments where reliable data is scarce. 
Over the past five years our team has worked on dozens of projects in frontier markets in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Our Yangon office is run by a team of local and international staff providing independent, in-depth and tangible work through on-the-ground research.

Our three subscription-based information services cover specific industries:

  • The Myanmar Financial Services Monitor, launched in May 2018, covers banking, insurance, capital markets, microfinance and mobile money, tracking one of the country's highest-potential industries
  • The Myanmar Real Estate and Construction Monitor, launched in June 2014, featuring a unique database of Yangon real estate projects, data, daily news reviews, tenders and company profiles. Our service also includes a twice-yearly Yangon Real Estate Review, spanning more than 200 pages.
  • The Myanmar Energy Monitor, launched in August 2015. Covers upstream and downstream oil and gas, plus conventional and renewable power generation, transmission and other areas. Subscriptions include our Myanmar Energy Brief report, published every Thursday
  • The Myanmar Transport Infrastructure Monitor, launched in January 2017. Coverage spans aviation, rail, road, ports, logistics and others, featuring a project database, tenders, daily news reviews, and a weekly Myanmar Transport Infrastructure Report every Thursday.
