Investment Opportunities in UK for 2011-2012

Hello Folks, since Jan 2011, we have been researching a few good Investment Opportunities in UK that can be used by investors and entrepreurs in our network – anyone based in the UK or abroad – location does not matter in such investments.

Our focus has been to look at businesses that are net exporters to the world, and have solid assets that will appreciate with time, even if the current economic weakness drags on for 1-2 years more. For some reason, many people in the UK automatically associate investment opportunities with property investments in the UK, but it does not have be like that because by investing in UK property, you are missing out on the growth happening in emerging economies like Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Many UK companies have business interests in these growth economies, and you must profit from them. Given the QE2 and overall positive liquidity in the global capital system, we believe natural resources are present a strong investment opportunity for anyone with 4 to 5 year timeframe.

Within the UK, Internet services, financial services, renewable energy, and pharma/biotech industries also present great investment opportunties that could give 25-50% return on investment in 2011-2012 timeframe. If you are interested to know more, please contact us .

Iron Ore Prices Likely To Double in 2010 with Quarterly Pricing System

The iron ore prices are very likely to double this year with the new Quarterly Pricing System, which will provide more price volatility due to the spot price market. Very interesting update from March 30th is that there is now an agreement between the top iron ore miners like Vale of Brazil and BHP Billiton of Australia and Japanese and Chinese steel companies that the 40-year old iron ore benchmark system which meant that prices will be done once a year has now been done away with and from now onwards iron ore prices will be decided on a quarterly basis, and that’ the starting of iron ore spot price market.

For those who are not aware, iron ore is the second largest traded commodity in volume terms after oil.So it’s a very large market but without its own index as of now and we believe that this decision is a very major step for a very strong rise in the iron ore prices in the coming quarters and also coming years because a spot price means that the market is going to mature and that the iron ore miners will have much better negotiation power ongoing from now onwards.
