As a founder and Chairman of the longest-standing firm in the nanotechnology investment arena, Rani Jarkas offers his clients and investors superior intelligence and investment products including a fund and two nano indices that enable them to participate in the growth of nanotechnology.
But why invest in nanotechnology?
“If you look into every industrial sector from materials to electronics to energy to defense to computing to telecommunications to life science, nanotech is the fulcrum that is moving the world. That is why investors who look for long-term growth might want to consider investing in nanotechnology,” Rani said.
Rani Jarkas has been educating and advising investors on how to capitalize on the growth in nanotechnology since 2003. He has unique relationships with public and private company executives, institutional investors, leading academic institutions, industry thought leaders and premier venture capital firms interested in nanotechnology. His solid network enables his clients to access some of the best investment opportunities. Rani is also often consulted about acquisitions and partnership opportunities from both public and private companies.
Rani Jarkas is a Chairman and founder of a global investment firm. He has been involved in the Nanotechnology field for almost a decade. Under Rani’s leadership, his firm has become a worldwide leader and the longest-standing firm in the nanotechnology investment arena, offering investors superior intelligence and investment products including a fund and two indices that enable them to participate in the growth of this exciting emerging technology.
Rani Jarkas has been leading and working with a team of nanotechnology experts including Dr. Thomas Kenny, who is an internationally renowned nanotechnology and micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) expert. Through Rani’s designed platform, he was able to provide access to proprietary nanotechnology equity research and offers an array of investment products to investors.
In October 2009, Rani introduced two global nanotechnology indices in order to meet the needs of diverse investors. These indices serve as performance benchmarks for nanotechnology investing. The diversified index includes equally-weighted companies spanning all five nano-markets, including electronics, manufacturing, energy, life sciences and clean technology and is inclusive of both diversified companies that have nanotechnology as only one of their many growth drivers, and pure-play companies that have nanotechnology as their primary driver of growth. The pure index is a concentrated index, comprised of equally-weighted pure-play companies spanning also all five nano-markets and is best-suited for small-cap investors.
Today, Rani is very proud to announce that the 1Q2014 performance of these two global nanotechnology indices have outperformed many of the major equity indices in the period, including S&P 500, NASDAQ Composite, MSCI World, Russell 3000, Nikkei, Hang Seng and Shanghai Composite with a respective return of 9.83% and 11.25%.
“We are delighted that our nanotechnology indices have outperformed major global indices since their inception. With many economies facing major environmental issues and aging populations, application of nanotechnology is set to accelerate to a new level in industries such as clean technology and life sciences. I believe that nanotechnology will enable the next major Technology Revolution,” said Rani.
Rani Jarkas, a global well-known entrepreneur and industry-recognized leader, will co-host a focus group discussion on the “Energy and Mining Sectors in Indonesia Today” together with the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR on 19th May, 2014 in Hong Kong.
The focus group will bring together some of the most influential members of the Indonesian government and business communities, including H.E. Mr. Mahendra Siregar, Head of the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board; H.E. Mr. Ir. Susilo Siswoutomo, Deputy Minister of the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry; and H.E. Mr. Chalief Akbar, Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in Hong Kong SAR and Macao SAR.
Rani Jarkas, who has years of experience in conducting business in Indonesia in the field of asset management and financial advisory services, said, “Indonesia today enjoys a large number of direct foreign investments and has record periods of economic growth to its credit. The country is expected to be one of the world’s 10 biggest economies by 2025 providing many good reasons to invest in the country.”
“With increasing interest in the mining and energy sectors in Indonesia from our tier-one institutional clients around the globe, I hope this focus group event will provide participants a unique opportunity not only to establish relationships with key Indonesian government officials and prominent representatives of the business community, but also to learn about exciting investment opportunities and unique assets in this resource-rich nation. It will also be an excellent occasion to exchange business ideas among members in international business communities, investors and the Indonesian Government,” adding Rani.
