“India much more straight-forward long term story than China” – Christopher Wood, Equities Analyst, Jefferies
For business and investment, India is now a more straightforward, long-term option than China.
But it is really smart to think BOTH India and China, not one or the other.
The equity strategists are saying it. All the trade commentators are saying get your product or service into India – now.
One equity analyst, Christopher Wood, the global head of equity strategy at Jefferies, said in the latest edition of his immensely popular newsletter to investors called ‘GREED & fear’: “India remains a much more straightforward long-term story than China, which is why GREED & fear has 39 percent of the Asia ex-Japan long-only portfolio, long-term in its focus invested in India and “only” 25 percent in China.”
INTO INDIA points to the incredibly high number of young Indians coming through – called the demographic dividend” – as the big reason to be there.
Time to begin or upgrade with an Indian investment and market entry strategy?
