Investment Objectives

The Fund seeks to track the investment results of an index composed of global companies that enter traditional markets with new digital forms of production and distribution, and are likely to disrupt an existing market or value network.

Why Invest?

  • Global All-cap Equity Exposure
  • Access Disruptive Technology Themes: Equally weighted between 100 stocks through ten disruptive themes
  • Long-term Capital Appreciation: Thematic Alpha


Thematic investing aims to capture exposure to secular trends taking shape within an economy, which can arise due to demographic shifts, changes in government policy, or more commonly, advances in technology. Disruptive technologies are impacting our day to day lives dramatically, and are forcing industries to change the way they do business. Those companies that are at the forefront of innovation, and leading the disruption of the status quo, may provide significant growth opportunities for investors.

  • Healthcare Innovation

    The majority of innovation in healthcare has been centered on the development of new diagnostic procedures, therapies, drugs, or medical devices. These advances range from new pharmaceutical agents and procedures (e.g. stents) to more precise diagnostic scanners and surgical robots.

  • Internet of Things

    IoT is the inter-networking of physical devices, buildings, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity which enables these objects to communicate with one another, collect and exchange data (sometimes on a continuous basis).

  • Clean Energy & Smart Grid

    Energy/electricity generated by power stations using clean or renewable resources such as sun, wind, waves and water. These energy sources release minimal amount of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.

    Smart Grid consists of controls, computers, automation, and new technologies and equipment working together, but in this case, these technologies will work with the electrical grid to respond digitally to quickly changing electric demand brought on by increased variability due to solar and wind power. The Smart Grid represents an unprecedented opportunity to move the energy industry into a new era of reliability, availability, and efficiency that will contribute to our economic and environmental health.

  • Cloud Computing

    Cloud computing is the delivery of computing services (e.g. servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics and more) over the Internet. If you use an online service to send email, edit documents, watch/stream movies or TV, listen to music, play games or store pictures and other files, it’s likely that cloud computing is doing all the work behind the scenes to allow this to occur.

  • Data and Analytics

    Data and analytics is a disruptive technology which enables business users to process every granular bit of data in quicker way, removing the traditional need for sampling & then applying models. It encourages an investigative approach in users for data analysis since they get access to the whole data. It can reveal insights hidden in the data, which were previously too costly due to large data movements.

  • FinTech

    FinTech describes an emerging financial services sector in the 21st century. Originally, the term applied to technology applied to the back-end of established consumer and trade financial institutions. Since the end of the first decade of the 21st century, the term has expanded to include any technological innovation in the financial sector, including innovations in financial literacy and education, retail banking, investment and blockchain technology.

  • Robotics & Artificial Intelligence

    Like the term "robot" itself, artificial intelligence is hard to define. Ultimate AI would be a re-creation of the human thought process; a man-made machine with our intellectual abilities. This would include the ability to learn just about anything, to reason, use language and conceive of original ideas or solutions.

  • Cybersecurity

    Cybersecurity involves protecting information and systems from major cyber threats, such as cyber terrorism, cyber warfare, and cyber espionage. In their most disruptive form, cyber threats take aim at secret, political, military, or infrastructural assets of a nation, or its people. Cybersecurity is therefore a critical part of any government security strategy.

  • 3D Printing

    The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. 3D printing has enormous disruptive potential in a wide variety of industries as diverse as apparel (e.g. printing custom-fitted clothing) to medicine and product repair (e.g. printing a replacement part for something at home).

  • Mobile Payments

    Mobile payments is a big term that can mean everything from paying at restaurants with your phone or swiping your card on your friend's tablet, to transferring money to family or co-workers without needing to physically hand them cash. There are a few different types of mobile payment systems that all work a bit differently.
