The success of global tech company Amazon has provided great investment opportunities for Pie’s Global Growth 2 Fund.
So, why does Pie pick companies like Amazon, ahead of many other well-known brands? It’s not about just buying the biggest global brands, but picking the best companies from that list.
This is where Pie’s strong and skilled active management strategy comes in. We can get a much broader view of the companies we invest in because we are able to meet the suppliers and customers of these companies. Our on-the-ground approach, including our UK-based equities researchers, uses analysis and experience to get information that might not be so readily available to retail investors. We can identify themes and trends early, which can lead to profitable investment decisions.
Amazon is a great success story. But what makes it appealing to our team is its long-term growth opportunities.
Amazon is much more than just an online marketplace with great brand recognition. It has a huge logistics network, it offers video and music streaming services. And with AWS, it has the largest cloud computing service in the world which is growing fast. Amazon is also starting online pharmacies and food delivery. Great companies leverage their investments and customer base to grow faster and add more value, and Amazon still has a long way to go here, making it a great investment for the long term in our view.
