Incorporate innovation into your investment portfolios
Traditional investing in equities focuses on established companies that are leaders in their respective industries. Investing in these companies has traditionally been the optimal way to have access to the overall growth in the economy with the support of well-known brands and proven management and products.
But in an environment of exponential change and disruption, such as the one we are currently experiencing, there is a growing need to complement this large cap strategy with portfolios focused on new innovative companies that are proving more successful in this dynamic marketplace.
Megatrends are colliding, from exponential technologies to climate change to social unrest. The dynamics of markets and society are changing rapidly. It’s time to look disruption in the eye and search for opportunities with a growth mindset and a global perspective.

Medicine and all things health-related have become more technological than ever in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Innovations in this field help to make faster and more effective diagnoeses. In particular, telemedicine, the Internet of Bodies (IoB) or cognitive automation are channels for many of these changes and can be leveraged by investors.
The circular economy and how investors can participate
Reducing, reusing and recycling will be vital in the future to find a balance between production and consumption. The circular economy offers extensive investment opportunities thanks to the boom in companies that are innovating in waste management, smart and sustainable packaging and collaborative economy platforms.
