Objective

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

Strategy

The Telecoms folio consists of large companies that range from wireless providers to telecommunications conglomerates that provide multiple services in the telecommunications industry.

As companies have expanded regionally and internationally, they could become increasingly dependant on telecommunications companies to power their operations. Similarly, increasing worldwide development could lead to increased demand for the products and services of the telecommunications industry.
