Why Invest in Emerging Markets Technology?

Access the world and the future all at once.

Emerging markets are home to 85% of the world’s people, and 90% of the global population under the age of 30. These young consumers are apt to embrace new technologies and have an appetite for modernization.


Capture exposure to technology as it expands.

Only 45% of people in Emerging Markets own smartphones, as compared to 77% of people in advanced economies. These phones are bringing first-time Internet access to billions of new consumers, transforming lives and economies at velocity.
