Introducing Livewire’s 2020 Funds of the Future List

James Marlay

Livewire Markets

There's never been more interest in companies and funds that are focused on investing in growth, innovation, sustainability and impact. Investing in 'the future' hasn't always been easy, as many of the opportunities were not readily accessible or they didn't 'tick all the boxes' for traditional asset allocators.

The good news for investors is that there is a rapidly growing suite of investment products with a focus on themes, industries, sectors and companies that represent the opportunities of the future.

Livewire is excited to be launching its inaugural Funds of the Future Series, where investors learn about these compelling opportunities and discover 10 of the funds providing exposure to where the world is heading.

Over the next two weeks, Livewire will publish a series of in-depth interviews with investment professionals dedicated to uncovering compelling long-term growth opportunities.

The insights series will culminate in our inaugural 10 Funds of the Future List.

Five criteria

We have used the following five selection criteria to filter the universe of potential participants in the series and to focus the insights on long-term opportunities. 

  1. Growth: Are focused on fast-growing industries and companies.
  2. Innovation: Are seeking out innovative businesses, industries and themes or are innovative in the way they approach investing.
  3. Focused: Are dedicated towards a specific and focused opportunity, for example, an industry or geographic region.
  4. Sustainable: Are looking at opportunities that will remain viable in the future.
  5. Positive Impact: Investing in firms that are making a positive impact.

We'll provide more detail when we reveal the 2020 list on the 9th of November.

SURVEY: Where do you think the world is heading?

As always, we're keen to understand what our readers want to learn more about, and how you're thinking about investing for the future. We've put together a 3-minute survey where you can tell us about the growth opportunities you're investing in and those you want to learn more about.

By completing the survey, you'll help us bring you more relevant information for your investing needs. At the end of the survey you can opt-in for early access to the 2020 Funds of the Future List via email, before it goes live on the website.
