The Silk route was the first global platform for trade. It was comprised of a number of interconnecting caravan routes over which trade was conducted. The trading routes themselves date back 5500 years and predate the silk trade. The routes were initially used for the trading of rock salt, a basic necessity for life and the first food preservative.
The most ancient of the trading routes crossed the Sahara desert. As trade grew, the routes expanded initially through the Middle East but quickly they developed throughout Asia, bringing silk from the East to the West.
At Silk Invest, we see a historical parallel.The Silk route gave the world its first extensive and interconnected trade network spanning across Asia, Africa and Europe. These trade routes not only created immense wealth but were also important paths for cultural and technological interaction.
Today, developed countries are close to their full growth potential. While Asia is reclaiming its historical economic dominance, Africa, Asia and the Middle East are reopening to the global investor. With globalisation, industrialisation, and rapid technological advancements, the modern Silk routes are once again being established. These provide us with unrivalled investment opportunities.
In order to connect the most interesting opportunities, we have created a team of investment professionals with specialist knowledge and outstanding track records in their respective local markets to capitalise on the rebuilding of these silk routes.
We believe we have a unique approach to a once in a generation opportunity.
