Mobius says there’s a terrific recovery taking place in developing economies and he’s particularly interested in India.

Singapore: Mark Mobius, a veteran investor in developing nations, said now is the time to buy their assets and favors India, Brazil and Turkey.

“We’re particularly interested in India at this stage,” Mobius said in a Bloomberg TV interview in Singapore on Friday. “I just came back from a two-week trip to India and I was just amazed at the changes taking place.”
