Thematic indices

Position portfolios for growth, leveraging broad, disruptive and forward-looking trends changing our society

Seismic shifts in climate, demographics and technology — known as megatrends — are transforming politics, economics and consumer behavior. Thematic investing positions portfolios for growth seeking the beneficiaries of these broad and disruptive developments changing our society.

Our thematic indices focus on companies from various industries honing in on a range of structural concepts with long-term economic impact. They attempt to identify current megatrends with future impact using a rules-based, transparent, and systematic approach. The indices can be used as underlyings for ETFs, mutual funds, structured products and exchange-traded derivatives.
