LONDON, July 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
As the global economy struggles to revive a largely moribund constitution, enterprises that have nevertheless demonstrated success of late are deserving of celebration. World Finance has pledged to recognise the efforts of those contributing to a great many sectors across the globe. Brimming with insightful and intelligently sourced content by some of the most respected writers in the business domain, World Finance is well equipped to recognise those most deserving of praise.
Infrastructural projects have been unearthed as an attractive investment option. "With relatively stable, long-term cash flow and favourable risk-adjusted returns, [infrastructure assets] can offer investors a way to diversify their portfolios at a time when equity and capital markets are unpredictable and interest rates on fixed-income securities remain depressed," states a recent report by PwC. World Finance as such, names the best funds, firms and projects in the world in its Infrastructure Investment Awards 2013.
Likewise, the global construction industry is forecast to expand in the coming years, as rapid urbanisation, a rising population and impressive economic growth in emerging markets look to fuel a considerable spell of growth. The Global Construction 2020 report anticipates growth in global construction will, in the coming decade, outpace that of global GDP, topping an estimated $12trn by 2020; with China, the US and India set to generate over half that sum. World Finance's Construction Awards 2013 recognise the best retail, energy, commercial, recreational, sports, residential, and mixed-use projects in a number of regions throughout the globe.
The growing technological demands of business and consumers alike have spurred the progression of technology enterprises worldwide. The rise of mobile computing, management of big data, ubiquity of the cloud, and the advancement of online trading platforms has broadened the horizons of those adopting a digital strategy. World Finance recognises the many and various companies participating in the digital revolution in its 2013 Technology Awards.
"After years of distrust and caution towards the stock market caused by 2008's financial crisis, many investors are seeing undervalued equities presenting far better value than the bond markets they've sought refuge in for the last four years." As sentiment is once again swaying in favour of equities, World Finance recognises the best investment managers of the year in its Investment Management Awards 2013.
The recipients of these awards are all contained in the July-August issue of World Finance, available in print and online now.
