Thematic Opportunities

Investing in pure-play growth themes

Why invest in Thematic Opportunities?

Our Thematic Equity strategies: Security and Safety, Robotics and Automation, Digital Health, Edutainment and Education Technology, Environmental Impact, and Infrastructure, are built around the belief that long-term structural forces of change are creating the potential for returns that other investment approaches might overlook. These strategies focus on the large universe of exciting pure-play small- and mid-cap companies offering products and services that are disrupting markets and challenging legacy incumbents.

We seek to capitalize on their innovative solutions while reducing beta by creating a single fund that makes direct investments in stocks from across our all our Thematic Equity strategies.
