Tano Capital is an alternative asset management firm founded in 2004 by Chuck Johnson, formerly Co-President of Franklin Templeton Investments and CEO of Templeton Worldwide Inc. Tano’s mission is to develop innovative investment opportunities in global hard assets as well as rapidly growing companies in India and China that will directly benefit from the domestic consumption growth in both markets.
Our philosophy is deeply rooted in the belief that the economies of China and India have begun the irreversible and rapid technological development trajectories from third world to first world that nations such as Chile, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan have followed in the past. The world as we know it is thus changing rapidly, in ways which have no historical precedent. Other economies have progressed through this rapid growth phase, but the key difference this time is that the populations of India and China taken together exceed 40% of the population on the planet. As economic prosperity rises in these nations, this will translate directly into large boosts in historical consumption levels for goods and services globally.
