Tencent is a dominant player operating five main platforms: IM - QQ, Weixin, SNS, online game, media (self-media, microblog, video), and utilities (video browser, mobile browser). It owns the world’s third largest social platform with 90% penetration in China. It is the No.1 global leader in online games which owns 100% Riot Games and 84.3% Supercell. It is also the No.2 payments player competing with Alipay (Source).
My personal opinion is that Tencent is the veins of the Chinese consumer economy, which grows massively, leading Tencent to huge growth opportunities.
It is a peculiar one because Tencent is not traded on the NYSE or NASDAQ, but rather is an “Over the Counter” stock. It creates some complications when it comes to offering it, liquidity and compliance being two to mention. Maybe someone from Freetrade could elaborate further
