Sustainable Equities Technology Disruptors
Our Answer to the World of Tomorrow
Technology has made its way into our lives at an extraordinary pace. It is reshaping every aspect, including how we communicate, work, travel, and search for information. And this is only the very beginning. Disruptive technologies like artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and quantum computing are transforming key steps in production value chains and creating many opportunities for progress that weren't imaginable several years ago.

Our distinctive strategy aims to generate attractive long-term returns while participating in the growth of tomorrow’s technology winners.
We seek investment opportunities globally by targeting companies with promising technologies, long-term secular growth prospects and scalable business models with high barriers-to-entry. To maximise the return potential and better navigate different phases of the economic cycle, we build a well-diversified portfolio with a broad exposure to technology themes*:
- High-tech products (e.g. robotics, virtual and augmented reality, future of mobility)
- Information processing (e.g. quantum computing, big data & intelligence, cybersecurity
- Connectivity (e.g. cloud, 5G, edge computing)

It enables us to identify companies with strong ESG credentials that provide solutions to improve environmental and social outcomes. This leads to better idea generation while increasing the quality of the portfolio.
