Stonehage Fleming Investment Management (SFIM) has launched a Global Thematic Investor Portfolio (GTIP) for investors.
The multi-asset portfolio will deploy capital thematically and focus on six long term megatrends, according to the firm.
These trends include societal advancement; automation, digital age, evolving consumer, healthcare innovation, and green economy.
Investment themes will be identified using an SFIM methodology that objectively ranks themes and assesses ongoing attraction.
The portfolio is aimed at investors looking for long term, total return, unconstrained by regions and sectors.
“Clients are increasingly seeking to align investments with longer term megatrends, powerful forces of change felt across societies, economies and markets. It is these megatrends that give rise to the more granular investment themes that we are investing in as part of the GTIP,” said Nicholas Mandrinos, partner at SFIM.
“By launching GTIP we seek to capture structural growth opportunities and provide an avenue for clients to allocate capital to investment themes with strong secular tailwinds and potential for sustained above average revenue and earnings growth,” he added.
The firm typically constructs portfolios by selecting funds managed by best in class managers from across the industry.
Graham Wainer, CEO and head of investments at SFIM, added: “Accelerating and persistent structural changes requires a manner of investing that is agnostic to traditional market-cap based asset allocation, that can overexpose investors to yesterday’s winners. In response, we have created GTIP to take advantage of these structural growth themes, providing a differentiated portfolio and forward-looking approach to investing money.”
