Audio – Mobius, 70, and still hitting the road

October 2, 2006

Mark Mobius, the 70-year-old emerging markets investment guru who oversees some $29 billion in assets at Templeton Asset Management, says he travels some 200 days out of the year looking for investment opportunities — and doesn’t expect to slow down anytime soon.

Would he retire ever? “No, I don’t see that,” he said. “I enjoy what I’m doing,” added Mobius, who was speaking from Japan in a telephone interview with reporters in New York.
