Silk Road Management, a Mongolia-based investment firm specializing in high-growth frontier markets, launched the Silk Road Myanmar Index on Wednesday to track the share price performance of eight Burma-related companies listed on various Asian stock exchanges, according to a report by The Financial Times.
