Trends and thematic investing are not about riding short-lived hypes, quitting at the right time and then hopping on the next hot topic. The key goal is to identify long-term opportunities and to capitalize on these. Our aim in writing this ‘Big Book’ is to explain in detail – and with very concrete examples – what trends and thematic investing means to us.
It is not just about great narratives, nor is it directed by fads or client appetite. Instead, it is a time-tested and clearly articulated investment approach, based on a thorough analysis of the powerful megatrends that shape our socioeconomic environment, and therefore our future.
