Active is:

Being part of the thematic story

Megatrends are changing the way we work, live and play. As investing in megatrends may be too broad, we should invest instead in themes within a megatrend that have the potential to generate alpha, and at the same time, resonate with our values and interests.

Why thematic investing

Everyone loves a good story. While most asset managers have historically centred their investments around specific asset classes or geographic regions, more investors today are looking for a greater emotional attachment with their portfolios. Thematic strategies that reflect a compelling narrative can help meet this demand and offer an attractive opportunity for active asset managers to show what they can deliver.

01 Megatrends

Urbanisation, Technological innovation, Resource Scarcity, and Demographic & Social Change.

02 Growth

Participate in winning themes impacted by powerful and secular shifts which are triggered by innovation, regulation or socioeconomic factors.

03 Transparency

Themes are well-known, starting as topics of conversation among budget decision makers within companies and will later become visible in most people’s personal experience.

04 Performance

Active selection of valid themes at appropriate timing allows for higher alpha potential.
