A new way to invest in world-changing trends

Globalization, democratization, the transition towards a knowledge society and the drive towards sustainability – these are just a few of the significant secular shifts that will shape our world, not just in the next few years but over many decades. They’re the “megatrends” that are changing the way we live and the way businesses operate, and they represent long-term growth potential for investors.
There are glimmers of these megatrends everywhere – when a 100 per cent solar-powered plane successfully circumnavigates the globe, when a computer lab uses big data to design climates optimized for growing the best tasting, most nutritious fruits and vegetables, and when genetic medicine sets its sights on cancer and hereditary conditions such as blindness.
