Thematic portfolios have accounted for nearly 40% of all equity fund net sales since 2017. What’s the reason behind this hype? Why is investing in technology innovations so exciting at the moment? And, how can investing in technology as a theme enable investors to diversify their portfolios?

Join us for a discussion with ARK Invest to uncover the hype behind thematic investing in technology. We’ll talk about next-generation internet, autonomous technology, robotics and how they’re transforming the economies as we know them.
