Digitalization is changing the world as we know it. Promising new technologies can offer solutions in a range of areas: self-driving electric vehicles reduce CO2 emissions and make parking spaces useless, robots compensate for a shrinking labor force in China, fintech provides access to financial services to billons of unbanked, and digital healthcare technologies have the potential to eradicate chronic diseases.

In a world of exponentially growing technologies, it’s important to see the wood for the trees, and steer clear of hypes. The various segments of our economy are in different stages of digitalization. Investors need to choose their investment approach depending on the stage a technology is in. If they do so, and diversify over a number of trends, they are well equipped to benefit from the many investment opportunities in the exciting field of digitalization.
