STEP 1: Unconstrained Growth Investment Philosophy

MayTech Global Investors begins its research step by ensuring its core Investment Philosophy guides its entire process:

Companies recognizing and taking advantage of large-scale secular changes in the global
economy are best poised for spectacular growth.

STEP 2: Identify Investment Themes

MayTech Global looks for industries with large addressable markets undergoing change.

To help us isolate the most promising opportunities, MayTech Global has established four pillars to help provide important context for our investment themes:

  • Accelerating advances in technology are creating a "winner takes all" dynamic
  • Emerging consumer class in developing markets
  • Demographic shifts
  • Regulatory changes

As MayTech develops new investment themes, we ensure they account for each of these four pillars.

STEP 3: Fundamental, Bottom-Up Research

MayTech Global employs a traditional fundamental, bottom-up research process at the individual company level.

First, our portfolio management team analyzes industry structures and competitive environments, looking to identify companies on which to focus.

We then look for those companies which are benefiting from disruptive change in their industry. Additionally, the ideal MayTech portfolio company possesses:

  • Large addressable markets
  • Scalable solutions to consumer problems
  • Multiple growth paths & opportunities
  • Significant barriers to entry

Our research process is characterized by an intensive due diligence and fact-checking regimen.
