Global - Industry - Telecommunications Investments (Archived)

Synopsis

Until the dot.com crash in 2000, Telecommunications funds were readily available from eager investors via the stock exchange, independent of business fundamentals. Since then, investors have been more cautious, and have been looking for sound policies and profitability. The accent has moved from start-up companies to established companies with forward looking business models. This report discusses this trend, together with criteria for investing in telecommunications companies and for establishing them.
