Investing in digital transformation

Disruption is everywhere. Digital data. Automation and Robotics. Smart mobility. In the investing landscape, the changing face of industries and companies should not be overlooked. Technology, resource constraints and social pressures are all potentially disruptive forces for investors. What’s next, and which trends should investors watch closely?

Food revolution

With available resources and arable land dwindling, farmers are facing a predicament. Technology holds the key, and investment opportunities are opening up as a result.

Consumer experience

A structural shift is occurring in consumer behavior, in our view, with spending on experiences increasing. People want to belong to a community and share their experience.

Automation and robotics

Smart automation will power the fourth industrial revolution, combining the innovation in industrial and IT processes.

Digital data

Rising urbanization and population growth with increasing devices per capita should continue to fuel data growth.

E-commerce

Smartphone penetration has dissolved boundaries of time and place, enabling consumers to buy products whenever and wherever they want.

Enabling technology

Tech devices and advances have disrupted every aspect of our lives, and spending on the underlying enabling technologies.

Fintech

The global fintech industry is at an inflection point and set to drive a major digital transformation in the financial services industry.

Smart mobility

Global urbanization will call for structural changes in technology that will alter the way we “consume” mobility in the coming decades.

Genetic therapies

Genetic therapies use genes and cells to treat serious diseases. Replacing defective DNA can remove the cause of an illness and restore health.

HealthTech

An aging population is putting more pressure on healthcare budgets, spurring healthcare providers to explore adopting new technologies.

Medical devices

An aging population and growth of the over 65 year age group will create more opportunities for companies selling medical devices.

Oncology

Advances in cancer therapeutics will create new multi-billion dollar opportunities for successful drugs.

Emerging market healthcare

An aging EM population will require public healthcare investment in EM to grow sharply to prevent an impending healthcare crisis.
