Global Technology: look beyond the volatility



In this video, Richard Clode, Portfolio Manager on the Janus Henderson Global Technology Team, discusses how the recent volatility in global equity markets should refocus investor attention on the importance of looking at the fundamentals of a business. In a recent trip to California, he met with technology companies that continue to benefit from long-term secular growth themes in the sector including cloud adoption, 5G and artificial intelligence (AI).
Key takeaways:
  • Cloud adoption has huge growth potential ahead.
  • 5G allows lower latency and hundreds and thousands of connections, enabling much broader technological advances and revenue opportunities than previous network upgrades
  • Although there are many AI success stories, failures are also starting to emerge. As ever, it is important to avoid overhyped stocks.

Specific risks

  • Shares can lose value rapidly, and typically involve higher risks than bonds or money market instruments. The value of your investment may fall as a result.
  • The Fund could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the Fund.
  • If a Fund has a high exposure to a particular country or geographical region it carries a higher level of risk than a Fund which is more broadly diversified.
  • Changes in currency exchange rates may cause the value of your investment and any income from it to rise or fall.
  • If the Fund or a specific share class of the Fund seeks to reduce risks (such as exchange rate movements), the measures designed to do so may be ineffective, unavailable or detrimental.
  • The Fund's value may fall where it has concentrated exposure to a particular industry that is heavily affected by an adverse event.
  • Any security could become hard to value or to sell at a desired time and price, increasing the risk of investment losses.
