FOURPOINTS take a unique approach for managing technology funds
For technology funds, our approach is thematic and is characterized by the pursuit of technological disruptions that create value. Our universe comprises about 300 names, of which 30 to 50 are in the portfolios.
Disruptive technologies, a key factor
- Disruptive technologies are happening faster and faster in the Infotech industry. They create winners and losers.
- FOURPOINTS has the ability to focus on these fault lines that run through the industry, free from index or geographical constraints.
- Investing in technology through a tracker or an index fund does not take advantage of these disruptions.
