Thematic investing is a form of investment which aims to identify macro-level trends, and the underlying investments that stand to benefit from the materialisation of those trends.

1. Innovative
It enables investing in innovative companies that are shaping our global economy and society.

2. Intuitive investing: Clients are likely to come across these trends in everyday life, making it recognisable, easy to understand and relatable.

3. Diversification: Thematic investing typically works across multiple sectors and market capitalisations and enhances overall diversification relative to a market-cap based model portfolio.


Factors are the foundation of investing—broad, persistent drivers of returns across asset classes. Factor investing is an investment approach that involves targeting specific drivers of return across asset classes. There are two main types of factors: macroeconomic and style. Investing in factors can help improve portfolio outcomes, reduce volatility and enhance diversification.

1. Outperformance:
It has the potential of generating outperformance relative to a market capitalisation index

2. Reduce volatility:
It has the potential to reduce volatility relative to a market capitalisation index
