As an emerging market

in education is one of the best ways to develop our population’s skills and prevent a brain drain.
Follow the emerging market trend by investing in education to profit from rising urbanisation
Other emerging markets
like China and India are already proving themselves as great investment
destinations by developing at roughly ten times the speed of the Industrial Revolution.
And it’s expected that Africa’s rate of urbanisation will have overtaken Asia’s by 2030.
This is mainly because urbanisation is on the rise, which has put quality education front and centre as a great investment opportunity
Think about it – as more people move to the cities, they need better qualifications to get better paying jobs.

that you can take advantage of this trend by buying stocks that supply what a population with urbanisation on the rise needs most.
Education is key among these emerging market needs.
By investing in stocks
that’ll supply these educational needs, your investment portfolio
will be positioned to take advantage of urbanisation on the rise and play a role in improving education standards around the world!
