Investors don’t know in advance which of today’s crop of young companies will be the largest in the world in 10 or 20 years’ time. But we do know one thing: it is the major trends that give these young companies the opportunity to grow.
This is the key idea behind VP Bank’s thematic funds. You invest in equities issued by companies that benefit from future trends. We have set up one fund each for the economic sectors of consumption, industry and infrastructure. As such, the equity funds are called VP Bank Future Citizen, VP Bank Future Industry and VP Bank Future Infrastructure. You can find out more about them in this video:
