◆Potential of global investment
If you look outside of your country, there are so many countries that are experiencing economic growth right this moment. In those countries, significant number of new business opportunities exist and brand new technologies that haven't been found yet are waiting to be released to the world.
Contrary to these potential business opportunities, there is a tendency that financial institutions in developing countries are not as capable of lending money to small company as in Japan or in the other economically developed countries. In other words, there are so many companies with huge potential and they are actively seeking to get financial assistance. On the other hand, the profit of investing in those companies are likely to be more attracting than other traditional financial commodities.
