COVID-19 seems to have acted as an accelerator for smartphone Ecommerce in Emerging Markets. This, coupled with what we believe to be strong fundamentals and attractive valuations, could continue to offer further potential for Emerging Markets Internet and Ecommerce companies to see potential growth going forward.”
