Thea will discuss the evolution of the asset class and how it explains current investment opportunities. Institutional investors today can reach any corner of the developing world. How did we get here, what does it mean, and where do we invest now? Thea will share her insight, formed by pushing investment boundaries and challenging preconceived notions, for nearly 20 years. We hope you can join!
