Pakistan is the sixth most populous country in the world with favorable demographics as majority of population is under the age of 30. It is amongst the top 10 commodity producers of Milk, Wheat, Rice, Sugar & Cotton and is strategically placed to become Asia’s premier trade, energy and transport corridor. The Pakistani stock market is trading at a significant discount over regional peers and other markets in the MSCI Emerging Market Index, while the corporate earnings have grown at a sustained double-digit rate in last fifteen years. All of these reasons make the Pakistani market a perfect opportunity for investment in the long term.
