What we believe
The digital revolution is transforming all industries at exceptional speed, generating solid returns with continuing momentum in the coming years. We think that traditional businesses will continue to be challenged and disrupted by new digital startups and the domination of tech companies will become even more prevalent.
We are convinced that emerging markets provide great growth potential for digital businesses. The digital world is a globalized world, but emerging markets are lagging behind the U.S. and Europe. As a consequence, many proven successful business models in developed markets will be transferred or adapted to emerging markets. Investors must be prepared to adapt to these changes and ready to capitalize on the many opportunities of an increasingly digitalized world.
