This white paper reviews the investment performance of minority and majority investments in global growth markets (GGMs). It finds that contrary to the general preference for majority positions, holders of minority positions in GGM companies fare well in the three major categories of risk. In most cases of notable differences, minority investments are favored. In general, however, the overall risks and rewards of an investment depend on the company as a whole and do not distinguish between minority or majority shareholders. Investment success or failure depends on a plethora of factors, but the study finds that it is not determined by investor ownership stake.
