You could take a look at a framework like PESTL, which could help you structure your thinking.

Also, keep in mind some fundamental questions:

  • What is the asset manager's mandate / investment strategy(stable, safe returns vs. speculative high-risk investments)?
  • What about other macro-economic factors (inflation / exchange rates / capital export restrictions etc. --> some of it covered in the PESTL P)
