THE NEW ECONOMY
When I was entering the city as an equity research analyst for a stockbroking firm, shall we say a good few bull and bear markets ago, I was doing a probate evaluation on my grandfather's estate and his blue chip share portfolio was invested in – banking and finance, brewery and tobacco, building and construction, retail, mining, insurance, engineering and machine tools, energy, shipping, textiles, transport and aerospace and investment trusts and that was largely it with the FTSE index made up of only 30 stocks – the old economy as it is now referred to.
Later I was to write about them in the Financial Times, Guardian and Telegraph financial columns.
Fast forward a few decades and look what shares we can invest in today's new economy...the ‘TechEconomy’.
Thematics include the following and more:
Artificial intelligence, virtual reality ,robotics, 3D printing, nanotechnology, autonomous vehicles, machine learning, cyber security, space exploration, oceanology, geneomics, hyperloop…
In advanced life sciences, there are rapid advances in gene therapy, genetic engineering, biotech medicine, regenerative medicine, immuno -oncology, stem cells, cannabinoids, medical marijuana and digital health analysis.
In the fintech space we have disruptors, unicorns, and decacorns, blockchain, cryptocurrencies, digital assets like ICO’s, eCommodities, electronic money, mobile commerce and electronic money.
In energy we have renewables, solar, fuel cells fracking, lithium and vanadium.
Almost any company at the scale up stage in these exciting new sectors has seen their share prices or values soar! Now the Millennials are either investing or day trade punting in them on a myriad of CFD's and spread betting apps. They GET this new era and are using smart phones rather than a bank or stockbroker to make their money grow and they are sharing their ideas throughout social media. it is not surprising when they have seen tech stocks returning up to fivefold in recent years namely the fangs ....Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google not forgetting Amazon.
