‘Emerging and frontier markets are still the best opportunity for the next decade – and they are cheap’: Mark Mobius on the Investing Show
- In our video interview, Mark Mobius explains why he has launched a new trust
- The veteran investor says emerging and frontier markets offer the best growth
- He shares his investment outlook and how he finds good companies
Emerging and frontier markets represent the best opportunity for investors to profit over the next five, 10 or 20 years, according to Dr Mark Mobius.
As a veteran emerging markets investor, he admits that he is ‘a little biased’ and you would expect him to say that.
But he has also put his money where his mouth is, coming out of a brief four-month retirement to launch the Mobius Investment Trust to profit from the potential growth of smaller and mid-sized emerging and frontier market companies.
Mark joined us on the latest Investing Show to outline why he believes emerging and frontier markets currently represent great value and the companies that he favours.
He shares his investment outlook, how he finds companies to invest in and why ‘by and large we like to go after those countries that are in trouble. Where the news is very negative’, as that provides the opportunity for good companies at bargain prices.
He also explains to Simon Lambert, of This is Money, and Richard Hunter, of Interactive Investor, the benefit of the trust and accompanying fund’s environmental, social and governance controls and why that can mean better profits from better run companies.
Will the UK stock market rise this year?
The FTSE 100 index has made a series of record highs this year but is down on where it started 2018.
The next few months will define whether this year was a good one for UK investors, but how are they likely to pan out?
Simon Lambert and Richard Hunter take a look at the outlook for investors and whether the bull market has further to run, or is likely to be sunk.
