Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
Peter Kohli headlined the Ivy Family Office Network’s Family Office Mid-Year Outlook 2013 with a presentation on the investment opportunities in emerging markets. Mr. Kohli is President and CIO of DMS Advisors, advisor to DMS Funds, a mutual fund company focused on emerging and frontier markets. The Ivy Family Office Network (IvyFON) is a leading global family office network. The event was held in Los Angeles on June 18th.
During his “Emerging Markets Outlook” presentation, Mr. Kohli stated, “The seven largest emerging and developing economies by GDP are China, Brazil, Russia, India, Mexico, Indonesia and Turkey. According to the World Bank, these countries along with South Korea will account for more than half of all global growth by 2025.”
Mr. Kohli enumerated several factors that make emerging markets an attractive investment opportunity:
1. Economic Growth – Faster growth than developed markets.
2. Corporate Strength – Maturing domestic markets have strengthened and made corporations more competitive with better corporate governance.
3. Wealthy Consumers – Global phenomena of abundant migration to middle class.
4. Improved Policies – Inflation and government debt are manageable.
5. Valuation Opportunities – Familiar valuations and growth strategies are attractively priced.
“Despite a recent roll back in emerging markets, there are still ‘many good stories to tell,’ most notably in India, which is taking many modernization steps and is adopting more business friendly policies,” said Mr. Kohli.
