    Geographically, in North East and South East Asia. By sectors, as usual in such periods, medical and agricultural production, with some educational programs thrown in.

    In India, as I see it and like Mikhail opined Medical, Agro and to top all Power are the feilds to be in. The rate India is growing is tremendous. The backbone for any industrial development is power. Green energy is also sought after by most.

    Emerging markets, obviously. I have experienced some very good interest from first world investors to back greenfield projects. looks like the West and Europe is waking up......they do not have a choice but to diversify their currencies.

    Investors first of all pay attention to what branches, by your experience?

    Hi everyone.

    Yes, Mikhail is correct as with Reuben...North, East and South East Asia and infact all emerging markets needs to be looked at intensely. As you say, the BRIC countries also holds potentials that we don't even consider 2 decades ago.

    Coming from the resources industry, yes metals and minerals will be sustainable over the next twenty years or more. As Ashwin pointed out, green enery will be sought but I still think that coal will be with us for a long time. The capital investment on a coal fired power plant is in the hundreds of millions so its not going to simply shut down for sake of the environment. What I think will happen is the search for the development of technology for cleaner burning of coal. This technology can and should be incorporated into existing coal power plants. Uranium is good but I think its still a long way to go.

    My work takes me into all the emerging markets and truth be known, the education industry is also poised to grow. In countries like Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, the population understands that in order to succeed they need to be armed with education and parents are prepared to forego luxury expenditures and holidays and to invest in their kids education with the hope that they will succeed.

    So, coming back to your hedge funds venture in Singapore, its a good idea - the money as far as I know is in Singapore and even Hong Kong but the problem is the hedge funds business model has already been captured by bigger banks or their subsidiaries or their investment arm. And these organisations have been well entrenched in the market and they are also always looking at adding value and enhancing their business model. So the trick is to also think about a business model that expounds value proposition to investors be it the revenue stream or other form of comparative advantage.

    Branches? I think I understand you mean geographic location.... I have had very good success in Africa at the moment, 3 very good fund raising projects in South Africa (iron ore), Namibia (Oil & Gas) and Mozambique (Coal). All in 6 months. Saxon is however looking at Mongolia at the moment, very attractive opportunities there.
