SIX INNOVATION MEGATRENDS
A Live Webinar Event: Wednesday, July 1st, 12:00 - 1:00 p.m.
The economy is increasingly shifting to a more binary story with two types of companies – Innovators or The Disrupted – as many companies are vulnerable to the disruptive effects of innovation. In this most recent downturn, the market has clearly differentiated between innovative secular growers versus economically sensitive and cyclical names.
We believe there are Six Innovation Megatrends of this secular growth super-cycle that will drive both the economy and investor returns for the next decade: Cloud Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Biotechnology, Virtual Empowerment, E-Commerce and Life Brands, and Medical Devices and Diagnostics.
Risk-based and behavioral-based biases, which have caused many investors to misprice and underestimate innovation, have resulted in the “Innovation Premium,” a corollary to the “Value Premium”, which has both academics and investors befuddled. In this discussion we explore how investors can best harness the Innovation Premium and the disruptive power of these themes within portfolios.
