[Sponsored Report] NH offers disruptive funds for clever investors


NH Investment Securities

NH Investment Securities offers the NH-Amundi Allset Global Disruptive fund, which invests in disruptive industries. The fund invests in four sectors - the digital economy, the fourth industrial revolution, life sciences and health and the earth and environment - that are not only limited to technology development but also are key elements of future growth and investment. The fund has invested in a total of 28 sub-categories classified within these four sectors to pursue long-term profitability.

Digital economy themes include pin tech, cloud, sharing economy and big data related companies. The fourth industrial revolution themes include armatures, autonomous vehicles, drones and artificial intelligence related items. Life science and health care themes include companies related to biotech and health care. The earth and environment themes focus on renewable energy such as solar and wind energy and companies related to shale gas.

The fourth industry-related fund, which has already been introduced in Korea, mostly invest in the IT sector. However, disruptive funds invest in broader themes rather than investing in just the IT sector or some technology stocks.

Disruption is the first theme investment fund to be released in Korea. However, there are 11 such funds in the global market, and the theme is rising to the 1.5 trillion won ($1.3 billion) level. The fund is being managed by CPR Asset Management, a specialized affiliate of Amundi Asset Management Group. CPR’s Global Disruptive Opportunities Fund was set up in December 2016 with a total investment of approximately 1.16 billion euros ($1.35 billion), with 12.71 percent operation outcomes after six months and 21 percent operation outcomes (as of Aug. 31) in one year.

Investing in innovative development is a key global investment trend, so this fund is recommended for investors who want to focus on the fourth industrial revolution, health care, digital economy and the earth and environment for long-term stable profitability.
