Sector’s landscape is changing – but it’s no less mighty

Although the technology sector is developing at a fairly rapid pace, some investors are cautious of investing in the sector due to high valuations and scepticism about its potential growth. Thomas Fitzgerald, associate fund manager at EdenTree shares his views in Investment Adviser, claiming that the increasing power and influence held by leading technology conglomerates has led to increased levels of regulatory scrutiny. For example, Google has been under investigation for alleged antitrust violations since 2010, with Facebook facing a similar legal battle.
