Access transformational change with thematic investing
The world is changing faster than ever as powerful forces and trends reshape how people live. Thematic investing enables investors to benefit from the powerful megatrends that are disrupting and shaping the future, unlocking the potential for stronger and more consistent returns.
Accessing transformational change is best done with a thematic lens - identifying long-term global drivers and the companies that stand to benefit from them.

Past performance does not predict future returns
The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
How we approach thematic investing
Keeping pace with change requires deep and broad sector-level knowledge. Our approach to thematic investing is informed by decades of accumulated investment stock-picking expertise – we believe differentiated insights increase the potential to deliver consistent long-term returns.
We see four key challenges facing society globally:
Global challenges combined with societal shifts lead to structural change:
People are changing how they live and work, how they stay healthy, and the goods and services they consume.
The global challenges and increased appetite to do things differently makes innovation more important than ever.
Climate-related events and demand for resources mean change is being shaped with sustainability firmly in mind.
Our investment approach recognises the power of change and we select companies accordingly.
Recognising the rate of change and the companies leading it.
The pace of change is faster than ever. We identify companies that are dynamically positioning themselves to be the winners of tomorrow.
Identifying the innovators providing structural solutions.
We seek companies that use and provide innovative techniques and technology. It is their solutions that enable structural change - and provide compelling investment returns.
Distinguishing between the thematic ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.
Companies driving change form a dynamic part of the market. But there is increased dispersion between the winners and the losers. This makes stock-picking expertise essential.
