Thematic Investing: The Intersection of Robotics and AI

By Prof. Wyatt Newman, PhD When I was asked to present a keynote address on robotics and AI at the LGIM Thematic Investing Forum in London last month, I was quite honored. What was most thrilling to me, however, wasn’t the invitation itself, but the fact that a conference focused on thematic investing was placing robotics and AI at the top of the bill. That level of recognition has been a long time coming, and from my vantage point, I believe it’s high time investors took note of the imme...

Turnkey Tech Investing: October 2019 Market Brief

By Bill Studebaker, CIO & President, ROBO Global   Once again, it seems like we are climbing the proverbial wall of worry. And yet, the price correction that typically follows the climb is nowhere to be seen. In the big picture, you could argue that investors seem to be stuck in one long waiting game. As I asked last month and continue to ask myself over and over again, what on earth are they waiting for?

In September, investors couldn’t seem to decide what action to take, which created a rollercoaster of market volatility throughout the month. As we see it, however, the market is conclusive about one thing: the ac...
