Water is essential to life. One of our most important natural resources, water is affected by global issues, such as population growth, urbanization, and increasing regulation to pollution and climate change. Thematics Water theme invests in companies participating in the provision of water utilities, pollution control and water infrastructure services.

Artificial intelligence and robotics are becoming more and more ingrained in every aspect of modern life. Significant advancements are boosting performance and lowering costs across a variety of sectors of the economy – and dramatically shifting the way we do business, live, and interact. Thematics AI and Robotics theme invests in companies that focus on the provision of products and services powered by AI and/or Robotics.

Every-day activities – from travel and online shopping to energy production and networking – are secured by forces that are practically invisible. These intangible resources underpin the framework of human safety in our global world today. Thematics Safety theme invests in companies that offers products and services for the physical and digital protection of individuals, business and government.

While some companies and industries were born as subscription services, others are increasingly using subscriptions to monetise their services or products – from video and music streaming to fitness, video games and retail. Shifting consumer preferences, technological innovation and increasing sustainability concerns mean the subscription economy is poised for accelerating future growth. Thematics Subscription Economy theme invests in companies that provide products or services on a subscription basis.

We believe that each of our strategies invests in the themes that are driving the future humanity, society, and the planet. To that end, Thematics Meta theme is comprised of the strategies within our thematic franchise – offering broad exposure to these critical themes in a single place. It invests directly in equity of companies and is not a fund of funds.

"Water remains the most important source of life and is facing an acute global supply and demand imbalance further exaggerated by pollution problems. In this respect, the capacity to solve water-related problems through knowledge, operational and financial resources is a global issue beyond sovereignty. We therefore aim to invest in predominantly profitable, well-capitalised companies in the Global Water value chain and Municipal Solid Waste markets."

"Factory automation has existed for more than 50 years, especially in industries where repetitive, difficult and dangerous tasks could easily be automated.

With technology advancements, robots can perform more diversified tasks, whether physical or cognitive, and collaborate with humans. Artificial Intelligence has also emerged as a promising investment opportunity thanks to easy access to computing power and proliferation of data.

As such through a focused, bottom-up approach we aim to invest in predominantly profitable, well-capitalised companies in the global Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and Automation value chain."

"There is recognised evidence that safety and security are a primary consideration for governments, corporations and consumers alike, as well as being at the top of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs."

Senior Portfolio Manager

"The increased usage by companies of subscriptions as a way to monetize products and services is driven by secular changes such as technological innovation, shifting consumer preferences and sustainability considerations.

While some industries were created based on subscription business models, many other industries and corporates with more traditional business models are increasingly turning to subscriptions.

As such through a focused, bottom-up approach we aim to invest in predominantly profitable, well-capitalised companies that provide services or products on a subscription basis.”
