Book Mark Mobius
- First joining the Templeton Emerging Markets Group in 1987, Dr. Mobius currently heads the organization’s research team, which is based in nearly 20 global emerging market offices.
- The recipient of numerous awards and titles, Dr. Mobius has been named the “1994 First in Business Money Manager of the Year” by CNBC, the “Closed-End Fund Manager of the Year” in 1993 by Morningstar, and the “Investment Trust Manager of the Year” in 1992 by the Sunday Telegraph.
- He has authored several books, including Passport to Profits, Equities – An Introduction to the Core Concepts and Mutual Funds – An Introduction to the Core Concepts.
Dr. Mark Mobius is the executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group, and a joint chairman of the Global Corporate Governance Forum Investor Responsibility Task Force. His expertise in doing business with countries like China has made him one of the top investors in new markets of the last twenty years, and he has been named as one of the “Top 100 Most Powerful and Influential People” by Asia Money. He has also been selected as one of Bloomberg’s “50 Most Influential People,” and as the “Emerging Markets Equity Manager of the Year” by International Money Marketing.
An avid author, his books include such titles as Trading with China, The Investor’s Guide to Emerging Markets, Mobius on Emerging Markets, and The Little Book of Emerging Markets. He holds a BA and an MA from Boston University, and a Ph.D. in economics and political science from MIT.
Dr. Mobius offers speaking programs covering a number of topics such as investing, economic outlooks, international business and globalization.
One of the big subjects of a recent speech program given in Warsaw, Poland was the topic of emerging markets. As an example, Mobius looks the primary differences between “developing Europe” and “developed Europe.” The last time Dr. Mobius was present in Warsaw was over 20 years ago in 1993. He explains that Poland has become quite the haven for marketing and consumerism since that time (at one point, the country featured department stores that didn’t even possess merchandise in their window displays).
Still very much an emerging market, Eastern Europe is an area that Mobius’ company, the Templeton Emerging Markets Group is seeking to conquer. It covers a vast area of land, has the ability to grow significantly in the coming years, and could possibly emerge as one of the most powerful markets of the modern world. Secondly, the area has made fantastic progress in the arena of agriculture. There is a huge possibility that farming and agricultural markets in Eastern Europe expand in good time.
Over the last few years, there has been a GDP growth of 28 percent in Eastern Europe, and an additional 5.4 percent over the next year is expected. Mobius explains that similar results can be seen in areas like Latin America, and certain regions of Asia, also classified as emerging markets. While debt is still heavy in areas like Eastern Europe, such debt is actually shrinking faster than debts witnessed in developed nations.
