Despite fears that emerging market growth has begun to cool down, a group of successful companies from these markets continue to expand overseas. For the past decade The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has compiled a list of these "Global Challengers" who continue to disrupt the global markets they operate in. Over the last 10 years these Global Challengers have grown nearly four times faster than their peers in mature markets and generated shareholder returns more than five times higher.
This year's list includes seven African companies, five of which are from South Africa. Discovery is a new inclusion and joins Bidvest, MTN, Sasol and Aspen. The seven African Global Challengers account for nearly 3% of Africa's total GDP.
Join Dinesh Khanna, global leader of the Global Advantage practice at BCG as he shares key insights and findings from his research on how these companies are setting themselves apart from their competitors. Local BCG partners Adam Ikdal, Euvin Naidoo and Stefano Niavas will also join the conversation to unpack how the Global Challengers can keep up their expansion in a slower global growth environment and where new global growth opportunities could lie.
