The challenges

Our three investment themes have tailwind from megatrends such as global population growth, resource scarcity, ageing population, energy transition, and innovation.

Changing demographics


Society is changing. An ageing population, increasing health needs, urbanization and migration create new challenges and opportunities.

Technology-enabled businesses
