Capturing innovation as it happens

Technological innovation is key to any company’s long-term performance and systemic progress. Measuring the true value that companies generate through innovation is challenging. That's why we stepped up to innovate innovation investing - by delivering an applied innovation parameter.

The Singularity Sectors

Everything starts with our Singularity Sectors. Together with our Singularity Think Tank, we curate a selection of the most relevant technologies of our time. This ensures that our strategy captures innovation leaders across countries, market caps, and industries to assure that we are not missing out on technological evolution.

By default, we are exposed to the most relevant technological phenomena. We don't predict, measure applied innovation. It's a diversified approach to help create timeless, yet highly progressive portfolios.
