Episode 1: Opportunities in an Ageing Population
Filming: January 20, 2021 at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT

As the world population lives longer lives, investment managers are thinking about what this means for their portfolios and what opportunities are emerging for investment in care and services. Consider healthcare spending, which will benefit from an aging population, as around 50% of lifetime health expenditure is incurred during the senior years, according to Janus Henderson. Alternatively, demand for senior living facilities is set to hit 2 million people in 2030, twice as much as in 2016, according to Haven Senior Investments. What is the actual size of the opportunity, and where exactly can these investments be found?

Join this webinar to hear about:

  • The magnitude of investing in an aging population
  • Which industries are most poised to generate returns
  • Why & how to be investing in sectors that service the needs of an aging population

According to Adobe, the ease of purchasing has manifested in a 77% year over year increase in online spending in May 2020 alone. During the COVID-19 crisis, around 15% of US consumers tried grocery delivery for the first time, and 40 percent intend to continue, according to McKinsey. Even exercise has shifted, as consumers try and enjoy their workouts at home. They are also looking for new food to try, as lab-grown meat has become a replacement for animal protein, as supply-chain issues have disrupted availability.

This has investors wondering: what are the long-term effects of new consumer preferences and methods of purchase?

Join this webinar to learn more about:

  • The size of the eCommerce opportunity now
  • How consumer preferences have changed during the pandemic
  • What new business models are emerging or evolving to capture new consumer behaviors
Episode 3: Investing in Health & Wellbeing
Filming: March 3, 2021 at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT

Advances in medicine and technology have increased our lives’ duration and quality, opening up opportunities for investors focused on the health and wellness industries. Technology enables us to track our health indicators, which changes the dynamic between healthcare companies, technology companies, and consumers. Holistic health services are also becoming more popular, decreasing the demand for mega-hospitals and increasing the demand for local, customized care solutions. And, as COVID-19 has forced a need for virtual interactions, people have become more comfortable receiving sensitive advice over the phone, paving the way for mass adoption of telemedicine.

With all of these areas of change, how can investors look at health & wellness more opportunistically?

This webinar will dive into:

  • The dynamics between healthcare and technology
  • How telemedicine can democratize access to high-quality health care
  • Opportunities emerging in localized solutions to the current centralized healthcare industry
Episode 4: Investing in Life Sciences
Filming: April 7, 2021 at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT

Biotechnology has become the next revolution in the life sciences industry. It follows advances in microscopes that enable the study of bacteria and infectious diseases and chemistry that created antibiotics. More recent discoveries, such as decoding the human genome, help us anticipate illness and live longer lives. For investment managers, the life sciences, which includes Pharma and Biotechnology, is known to be an industry of consistent returns and high growth. Even before COVID-19, it was poised to reach $775 Billion by 2024. The urgency of COVID-19 and the demand for a vaccine increase the value of the industry, shown in the US government’s Operation Warp Speed, a $10 billion grant program seeking a successful vaccine.

How will the value of life sciences grow as the market demands cures to existing diseases and prevention for future ailments? Join this webinar to learn about:

  • The true size & market outlook of the life sciences industry
