Investing in the new economy


In this age of unprecedented innovation and digital disruption, a wealth of opportunities is emerging in the global economy. Notwithstanding, eager investors looking to capitalise on these trends by targeting narrow themes or sectors may be exposed to disappointing outcomes. Instead, a prudent manner would be to adopt a broad, dynamic investment approach by investing in a range of companies that are well-placed to capture the growth and innovation in this evolving global economy.
