Discover Thematic investing

Why thematic investing is important.

Thematic investing can mean different things to different people, encompassing themes as broad as globalisation or as narrow and specific as space exploration or crypto currencies. For some, thematic investing also includes responsible investing, or investing in-line with environmental, social and governance factors.

At BNY Mellon Investment Management, thematic investing means investing in innovation for the future of society. It means investing across geographies and sectors with a long-term mindset and time horizon.

This short video showcases some of the key themes that could be important for investors to consider.
