Objective

The Construction folio was developed for investors seeking aggressive capital growth with significant volatility.

Strategy

The Construction folio consists of large companies that range from building material providers to housing manufacturers.

As global population grows, construction companies tend to attract new business and focus more of their operations internationally. Rapid development in Eastern Asia, many parts of Africa, and South America, as well as rapidly increasing GDP in large nations such as China and India could translate into increased demand for new construction.
