Investment Strategy

Companies are short-listed from the investment universe on the basis of their exposure to the growing demand for luxury goods from emerging economies.

With increasing disposable incomes in many developing countries like China, India and Indonesia, there is a significant increase in demand for high quality luxury goods.

Once basic necessities are taken care of, people are inclined to spend on “aspirational goods”. These include luxury apparel, shoes, accessories, premium beverages and luxury cars. The Vue invests in companies that produce and/or distribute such products in emerging markets.
