Capturing new opportunities in emerging markets is at the core of our collective wisdom. Our advisory service helps investors forge strategic relationships, navigate volatile emerging markets and drive business performance in those markets. We guide investment in the following sectors:
Green Technology, Energy Production and Oil/Gas
Demand for power in emerging economies is growing annually. Many countries have embarked on programs to target state-owned capacity but also encourage independent power producers and provide tax advantages for green technologies.
Information and Communication Technologies
The provision of ICT facilities and infrastructure on a broad scale across urban centers and the extension of broadband/ fibre infrastructure and computer access to rural areas.
Agriculture & Fisheries
For producers and processing companies in various crops for national, regional and foreign markets, irrigation facilities, technology and support services, raw materials and post-production services.
Water and Sanitation
The extension of water and sanitation coverage and the rehabilitation and maintenance of existing infrastructure. Investment capital is needed to provide point sources, small town pipe schemes, rain harvest plants and household/institutional latrines.
Housing and Construction
The construction of commercial properties (office space, shopping facilities, storage), industrial construction (warehouses), residential houses (low-cost housing), high rise quality apartments, retirement communities; and the provision of construction equipment and building materials.
As many countries in the emerging economic space improve safety and accommodations, tourism has become a fast growing sector of the economy driven by each country’s unique historical, cultural and natural attractions. Capital is needed for the construction and provision of services for hotel resorts, lake/river resort development, and the establishment of ecotourism packages and national parks.
Defense & Security
There are needs for national and marine defense and security equipment to protect existing infrastructure and territorial boundaries. The provision of physical security services and technology (guards, cctv, software, etc.) is also a growing sector with the continued increase in foreign direct investment.
Education and Training / Vocational Training
A knowledge gap is forming as development needs and expertise increase, specialized learning and vocational training in areas such as engineering, mechanics, health, safety, etc. to supplement qualified labor.
Food & Drink
The supply, packaging, processing and manufacturing of food industries, and demands for wider tastes and international products.
Ports & Logistics
There are opportunities to develop the busy commercial container ports across emerging markets to meet growing levels of international traffic. Infrastructure is needed to increase capacity and modernize the handling of bulk cargo, container traffic and oil services.
Roads and Transport
Mass transportation opportunities include: railway rehabilitation, lake transportation systems, airport expansion, air transport for domestic, regional, and international services.
