Megatrends & thematic investing

The rise of powerful
investment themes

BlackRock has identified five megatrends that are giving rise to a new set of powerful investment themes — the advent of disruptive technologies, radical shifts in consumer choices, greater regulatory intervention and new opportunities for growth. Against this backdrop, investing thematically (thematic investing) can identify stocks that are favourably positioned to the most rewarding themes and build portfolios that offer pure exposure to them.

Capital at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and are not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested.
