AXA IM will talk about investment opportunities in the evolving economy as a result of the digital disruption at Funds Society's sixth Investments & Golf Summit.
Changing demographics and technological disruption have accelerated the trend towards thematic investment in recent years as the historical boundaries of sectors have become increasingly less relevant. According to the firm, global equity unconstrained investors looking through this thematic lens can clearly identify the disruptors from the disrupted; or as they term it the ‘old economy,’ where companies maintain more traditional approaches, and the ‘evolving economy,’ which consists of firms who have embraced these fast changes.
AXA's Digital Economy strategy is focused on the e-commerce value chain and digital transformation of traditional businesses.
Matthew Lovatt, Global Head of Framlington Equities, AXA IM, will be at the summit to explain everything regarding the strategy. Appointed in June 2018 as Global Head of Framlington Equities, the active stock picking expertise of AXA IM, Matthew is also a member of the Management Board of AXA IM. Matthew has 30 years of investment experience and joined AXA IM in 2004. He started his career in Equity Research at Henderson, before developing an equity hedge fund business. He holds a BSc in Economics with Statistics from Bristol University.
