A quick look at a few facts highlights the expansive opportunities created by just two of the themes Citi Investment Management’s Co-Head of Global Equities Archie Foster, Senior Portfolio Manager Wietse Nijenhuis and Senior Equity Portfolio Manager William Mann explore in Investing with a Thematic Lens.

 

Increasing Longevity

By 2050, more than two billion people will be over 60 years of age.1 80% of people over the age of 65 have at least one chronic condition, and 77% have at least two2

The ‘very senior’ population, the number of over-80s, is projected to more than triple, from 137 million to 425 million by 2050, concentrated in developed nations.3 An 80 year old consumes six times the health care that is consumed by a 59 year old4

 

Global Consumerism

By 2030 an estimated 5.3 billion people will belong to the global middle class, representing an additional 2 billion people compared to today; in China alone over 70% the population in 2030 could be middle class5

The collective increase in spending power from this segment is expected to grow from $37 trillion in 2017 to $64 trillion in 20306

 

Thoughtful thematic investing may prove to have profound, positive investor implications. As important, in our view, will be avoiding negative implications with excessive portfolio exposure to businesses and sectors most likely to be impacted negatively by themes.
