Connectivity is now a utility - If not a human right
Technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies are central to our lives and the way we live them now. Screens, phones, tablets and the tasks, content and coordination we use them for have become close to ubiquitous.
Your news, your friends, your shopping, your job-hunting resources, your work, and your credit card statements. From the mundane to ensuring accountability for human rights violations - It's all there.
It’s become almost impossible to live without internet access. Connectivity is now a primary utility – if not a human right.
TMT is a growth engine
Fundamental to productivity increases
The fast-moving (TMT) sector meets our investment criteria not just because of that utility but because it is fundamental to productivity increases. TMT creates millions of jobs in itself and is an engine of growth creating jobs, efficiency and new opportunities far outside what we traditionally think of as the TMT sector.
The telecoms sector has a unique history, is highly complex and affected by structural changes that create opportunities for private investors like Redstone. We like the fact that demand side; it is less affected by the consumer cycle and economic uncertainty than many comparables.
