 A recent report in Business Times shared that active asset manager of Allianz Global Investors had launched the Allianz Thematica fund, available to retail clients at Citibank.

Thematic fund creates a chance for investors to be a part of a particular theme that is affected by several shifts in the world, and it could be triggered by factors like innovation and regulation, socio-economic factors and a narrowing supply-demand situation. Having partnered with Citibank to distribute this fund, the report said: “the Allianz Thematica Fund seeks to provide long-term capital growth by investing in global equity markets with a focus on theme and stock selection.”

Additionally, The Allianz Thematica Fund thus focuses on global equities whose growth is driven by structural shifts in areas such as advances in technological innovations, changes in demographics or consumer preferences, and updates in regulatory policies. On that note, the report highlighted some of the themes worth investing in the fund include:

  • Water and waste
  • Digital life
  • China impact
  • Health tech
  • Artificial intelligence
