Humanity is facing two important trends. Over the next 30 years, our numbers will grow and our average age will increase. These demographic trends are taking place alongside huge structural shifts. The Fourth Industrial Revolution— powered by automation and connectivity—and the environmental credit crunch will dramatically alter the way the global economy works. All these issues are entwined, but what do they mean for investors?
In this report, we consider some of the biggest areas of change for humankind—driven primarily by demographic shifts and enabled mainly by technology—and the associated investment implications. We expect changes to be largest in three key areas: education, healthcare, and happiness and consumer preferences. Discover what investing for the future means in our Future of humans report.
