Position your portfolio for the ideas that are already shaping tomorrow. Structural shifts are transforming how and where money is being invested. Understanding and addressing these changes is crucial.
That’s where our investable themes – China, rates, sustainability and disruption – can guide you.
By providing new perspectives, these themes can help you think beyond the traditional ways of classifying investments. They offer important ways to make sense of and navigate some of the complex forces that will drive tomorrow’s returns.
They represent solutions for the future – and a case for action today.
To stay focused on their goals, investors may need to reposition portfolios to factor in rising interest rates, shifting inflation expectations, and fluctuating exchange rates. Geopolitical turbulence is creating new flash points. Volatility is set to be a hallmark of the coming period, with countries and regions on different paths in terms of growth and monetary policy. Investors may struggle to find safe havens and, with only limited visibility of how markets will develop, expectations could be upended. But we are also confident this environment will create opportunities. Diversification is key – across public and private markets – and we have the ideas and expertise to help you navigate the complexity.
We think it’s time to disrupt traditional definitions of “disruption”. Once a story for the tech sector, disruption is now all-encompassing. And while technology and AI may be driving many of the changes, this new wave of disruption could shape every aspect our daily lives. The implications will be profound and exponential – and many of the themes arising from Covid-19 will likely be permanent fixtures.
Sustainable investing is at an inflection point. Interest in sustainability has turned into significant investments, and these inflows rightly come with increased expectations about impact and measurement. Investors are at different stages of their sustainability journey and have different ambitions. We’re focused on bringing sustainable investing into the real world, with a focus on pragmatic approaches and the pathways that support real progress.
China is changing. Its economic growth is increasingly driven by innovations in technology, data and science. Its capital markets are developing with a similar energy, on their way to becoming an integrated part of the global financial system. Understanding the country’s unique political context and strategy is essential to grasp the opportunities as an investor and participate in this unique investment story.
We expect biodiversity to be a major theme for investors in 2023, after the recent COP 27 formally acknowledged the link between the climate and biodiversity crises – as underscored by severe weather events this year. We hope that the upcoming COP 15 – a conference dedicated to biodiversity – will agree a global biodiversity framework for the coming decade that will live up to high expectations.

The traditional approach to increasing yields in agriculture relies on seeking incremental gains via refining existing processes and making more efficient use of capital; for instance, by way of improving fertilizers and pest control, or using bigger and better machinery.
The shift we are seeing in markets feels momentous. But after an extended period of ultra-low interest rates and well-behaved inflation, does it simply represent a return to “normal” financial conditions – where money has a cost again and equities may not be the only option? As markets adjust and begin to stabilise, we think opportunities will emerge in 2023. Our experts explain more.
