Episode 44: Mark Mobius – Investing in Emerging Markets

The Guru of Emerging Markets is Mark Mobius. Mark is starting a new company, Mobius Capital Partners after his retirement in January 2018 as the Executive Chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group.

Mark started at Templeton back in 1987, before most Americans knew there were markets and/or countries to invest outside of the United States.

You can see why it was imperative for me to speak with Mark before my trip to China next month to meet with a few companies to discuss investment opportunities related to the largest industrial project in the history of the world, One Belt One Road (OBOR).

His new company will begin in April or May. Their mutual fund will be open to anyone around the world depending on regulations. Once they are registered in the United States, they will be open to IRA customers. This new fund will focus on emerging markets and public companies. They intend to invest in companies that are willing to act ethically; Mobius Capital will seek to encourage and motivate companies.

He talks about the enterprising protestant and Catholic work ethic and why this benefits society and countries growth.

He has a wide educational background, is an accomplished author, and has received numerous awards and accolades. Mark resides in Singapore although he spends a lot of time traveling.

He says investors should also consider how their investments will affect society.
