"Tencent skillfully pursues silent global dominance, expanding mainly in the form of large and small investments in companies industries around the world, without naming them Tencent," said Niko Partners Managing Partner Lisa Cosmas Hanson.

Appeal to women

“Women are driving the growth of the gaming market,” said Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad.
