Structural economic changes—such as shifting demographics and social change, technological breakthroughs, scientific discoveries, climate change and resource scarcity—are evolving at an ever-faster pace. In order to capture these, some investors want to realign their portfolios to these rapidly changing dynamics.
Our suite of megatrend indexes aims to represent the performance of companies affected by these forces that are shaping our future. We see four megatrend categories that many believe capture the forces shaping our future – Transformative technologies, Health & Lifestyle, Changing Society and Environment and Resources. These megatrends have the power to transform global economies.
