Whitepaper: Who are the businesses of the future?

By 2025, emerging regions are expected to make up almost half the companies in the Fortune Global 500, up from 85 in 2010. Which means that, to identify the great businesses of tomorrow, investors need to shift their focus away from today’s go-to stocks.

We will need to look particularly to online technology platforms domiciled in China, which is now the largest e-commerce market in the world. This white paper looks at the key attributes of these businesses, and highlights some of the companies we believe could be the businesses of the future.

  1. Hi Andrew,

    Thank you so much for your very detailed summary of the businesses of the future. It’s wonderful to learn how Alibaba and Ten Cent have the potential to grow now and in the future due to their business models. Does the Montgomery Global Fund still own these two shares or do you see them fully valued before the next crash? Since these are Chinese companies, are you concerned that there may be fraud in the accounting practices?

    Many thanks,

      Many thanks, Stefanie.
      Our Montgomery Global Fund and Montaka funds continue to own Alibaba and Tencent.
      We gain comfort from our analysis of the cash flow statements of these businesses that the probability of accounting fraud is low. It is very difficult to fake cash balances.
      All the best,
