Developing economies have seen relatively strong GDP growth over the last decade and we believe they are positioned to continue to outperform developed economies well into the future. TriLinc's top-down portfolio optimization process helps identify countries with favorable growth characteristics, legal and political stability, and capital access. Our target countries have typically experienced significant economic growth over the past decade due to their expanding role in global trade and investment, their ability to maintain sound monetary and fiscal policy, and strengthened rule of law.
