Thematic Investing Intro copy

What is Thematic Investing?

Thematic investing is characterized as a top-down investment approach that capitalizes on opportunities created by macroeconomic, geopolitical and technological trends.

These are not short-term swings – but long term, structural, transformative shifts.

These thematic shifts touch every corner of our lives from the growing digital economy, to smart cities and the food revolution, to efficient energy and disruptive and autonomous technology – and so already impact investment portfolios. It is therefore important that investors better understand their exposure to these trends as they construct portfolios and make decisions around future strategies.
