1. Investing in the future

You can invest in a multitude of things today, such as the energy transition, research on artificial intelligence and the development of new medicines, to name just a few of them. As an investor, you can opt for thematic investment funds that invest primarily in the shares of companies whose products or services provide solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

2. Megatrends

Thematic investing begins with megatrends. These are the most important developments changing the face of our society for generations to come.

They are structural and enduring global trends that affect our economy, society and innovation, such as demographic ageing, the rise of data and the scarcity of natural resources.

3. Thematic investing

Megatrends create challenges and opportunities for businesses, governments and consumers. As an investor, you can go for an investment fund that invests primarily in innovative companies or companies that evolve along with innovation. KBC Asset Management NV has grouped these companies together according to their role in society.

Be sure to read the Key Information Document and the prospectus before investing. Both documents can be obtained free of charge in Dutch and English from your KBC branch or at You will also find a summary of your rights as an investor there in Dutch, English, French and German.

Care and health

By 2050, one in six people worldwide will be over 65. This means that care and health will become even more important in the years to come. That’s why, at KBC Asset Management, you can invest in companies that invest in this particular theme.

Future infrastructure and society

The next few years will be crucial for companies that help shape our way of life. For example, Europe needs 2.9 million public charging stations by 2030 to facilitate the transition to electric driving***.

Digital evolution

Digital technology is evolving at breakneck speed, providing a constant stream of new applications. For instance, almost 30 billion devices worldwide will be connected to the Internet by 2030***.

Quality time

In our rapidly evolving society, we increasingly need individuality and personal experience. For instance, analysts expect the global sports goods market to grow by 8% to 10% a year until 2025***.

Daily needs

What we take for granted in our daily lives is constantly changing. Approximately 7 400 billion dollars’ worth of goods will be purchased online worldwide by 2025. That’s twice as much as in 2021***.

A broad view of housing

In addition to more traditional real estate themes, other property themes that are less accessible to private individuals are being targeted, such as data centres, transmission towers, storage facilities and residential care centres***.
