Emerging markets investor Mark Mobius has his eye on the Philippines, unshaken by political uncertainty from a leadership change in June.

The executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group noted how presidential debates this election season have centered on issues instead of harping on "populist" policies.

Mobius was in Manila to launch MyTown, a condominium project that targets call center agents and other young urban professionals.

“We believe the Philippines is going to be the leader in BPO (business process outsourcing) operations globally because you have so many well-qualified people—people who speak very good English, which is required for most of these BPO operations, and people looking to get ahead.”

Catch Mobius’ full interview with Cathy Yang on The Boss, airing on Wednesday at 7:30 PM.
