Megatrends are powerful, transformative forces that are changing industries, Government policy and the way we live our lives. Compare life today to 10 years ago. We’ve switched from 3 TV channels and a Sky subscription to a world of streaming services, the restaurant industry is changing with the rise of dark kitchens, and self-driving electric vehicles are on the way.
Thanks to Hatch, you can invest in the future you want to see from your living room. All you have to do is look at how your environment is changing to identify industries that will grow over the next 20 years. You can support climate change initiatives by buying shares in renewable energy pioneers, or plant-based protein providers. You can put money where your equality ideals are by investing in companies leading the way with females at the top. By investing in what you believe in, you might help to create a better world.
Hatch has made it even easier to invest in megatrends. Now, you can browse the companies and exchange-traded funds at the forefront of future-focussed trends, starting with Green, Female, Cannabis and Tech, but with more on the way! You can buy shares (or fractions of shares) in cutting-edge companies, or choose to spread your investment dollars across tens or hundreds of companies pioneering these movements, by buying shares in an exchange-traded fund.
Remember, megatrends are long term structural changes, and there's no crystal ball, so as with most investing, research and a long-term frame of mind is essential. Patience, grasshopper.
