Future Vision Kristal
Overview: The Future Vision Equity pooled strategy invests in single name equities that are aligned with themes in disruptive industries which are likely to play a more important role in the next decade ahead. The core themes that have been identified are: Biotechnology and Genome research: Medical advances with the help of AI and reduced cost for genetic editing have the potential to disrupt the healthcare industry in years to come. We are looking specifically for companies in the sector of life sciences, genetic solutions for cancer treatment, Human-Machine-Interface technologies, etc. Water & Food: We may run out of clean water, and while we might not run out of food in the foreseeable future, there is certainly, a need to become more efficient and sustainable in the way how we feed a growing world population. The investments will be predominantly in companies in the Agricultural/Food Tech space, Water companies (Technology or utility) or environmental management companies. Cybersecurity: The cost of cybersecurity at an average level has increased by over 72% in the past 5 years, and 13% alone from 2017 to 2018. An Accenture Study about the cost of cybercrime states that the Value at Risk from Cybercrime in the global economy is rising, and so is the cost of prevention. Renewable Energy/Electrification: We do not think that global warming is a hoax, therefore investment in the renewable energy space will continue to grow and transform the way how we produce and consume energy in decades to come. Investments can for example take place in companies which are either Renewable Energy generators or provide technology that reduces carbon emissions, but also companies at the heart of the trend towards further electrification, specifically energy transmission and battery technology. Selection of Companies: Through thorough fundamental research of the companies from an initial shortlist, we identify the ones with a technological and commercial advantage over others
