5 New Technologies our Portfolio is Invested in

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

While you’re probably aware of ChatGPT, AI is already utilised across a wide range of sectors. 

With its ability to learn from data, adapt to new scenarios, and perform tasks with increasing accuracy over time, we’re only starting to scratch the surface of AI’s potential.

With no signs of slowing down, AI could be worth an extra $315 billion to the Australian economy by 2030.

Investing in the companies at the forefront of this innovation is a sound strategy to financially benefit from this expected growth.

Our Future Shapers portfolio contains a variety of companies that are at the cutting edge of AI innovation including:

  1. Microsoft Corporation: Microsoft provides substantial investment and computational resources to fuel pioneering AI research and innovation, essential for driving future technological advancements.
  2. NVIDIA Corporation: NVIDIA has transformed from graphics and gaming into a leader in AI and deep learning with its powerful GPUs driving advancements in machine learning, autonomous vehicles, and data centres.
  3. ASML Holding: ASML is critical to AI’s infrastructure, providing photolithography systems needed for producing advanced semiconductors that enable cutting-edge AI computing capabilities.


Blockchain is far more than just the backbone of cryptocurrency; it’s revolutionising sectors by providing transparency, security, and efficiency.

Particularly in areas like supply chain management and secure transactions, blockchain presents a fertile ground for investment. 

Statista predicts that blockchain’s economic value could be worth $943 billion USD by 2032, representing a CAGR of 56.1 percent.

Investors are uniquely positioned to capitalise on this technology as it continues to evolve and reshape entire industries. 

With its growth and integration into various sectors, investors can seize the chance to support and partake in innovative projects that leverage blockchain’s unique attributes. 

As it moves beyond finance into fields like healthcare, real estate, and digital identity, the potential for sustainable, transformative investments expands, presenting unprecedented opportunities for those ready to engage with this dynamic technology.


Electric Vehicles (EV)

Anticipated to grow at a consistent annual rate of 9.82% (CAGR 2024-2028), the market is projected to expand to a value of US$906.7 billion by 2028.

As the EV market matures and expands, its growth potential becomes even more significant. 

This growth is not just limited to vehicle sales but extends across the entire supply chain, including battery production, charging infrastructure, and technological innovations aimed at improving range and performance.

Our Future Shapers portfolio reflects this comprehensive approach, covering not just leading EV manufacturers like Tesla and BYD Company Limited but also key players like Samsung, who are spearheading the advancement of lithium-ion batteries crucial for powering these vehicles. 


Energy Transition

Investing in the energy transition offers a unique blend of benefits that align with both financial growth and environmental sustainability. 

Global investment in energy transition hit 1.8 trillion in 2023, up 17% from the previous year as well as Government’s globally having allocated USD 1.34 trillion to clean energy since the pandemic. 

The shift towards renewable energy sources like solar, wind, and hydro presents significant growth opportunities, driven by increasing global demand for cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions.

For the first time, we are seeing the investment in solar exceed the investment in oil internationally, reflecting both public demand for cleaner energy as well as Government commitment to sustainable development and carbon reduction goals. 

Our Future Shapers portfolio features exposure to this growing sector through companies pioneering this space such as:

  • Vestas Wind Systems: A global leader in manufacturing wind turbines, providing modern energy solutions that contribute to a significant reduction in carbon emissions.
  • Ecolab Inc: At the forefront of water, hygiene, and infection prevention solutions and services, playing a critical role in supporting clean energy and environmental sustainability initiatives.
  • NextEra Energy Inc: The world’s largest producer of wind and solar energy, leading the charge in clean energy generation and energy storage.

By integrating companies like these into our portfolio, we aim to capitalise on the dynamic growth of the clean energy sector, as well as diversify into different green energy technologies to reduce exposure to individual risks and create a robust investment mix.



Investing in biotechnology offers several opportunities for strong returns on investment, primarily due to the sector’s dynamic nature and potential for significant breakthroughs.

Biotechnology is at the forefront of scientific innovation, particularly in health, medicine, and agriculture. 

Investments can lead to groundbreaking treatments, vaccines, or farming solutions, which can be highly profitable.

However, it’s important to note that biotech investments can also be risky due to high research and development costs, regulatory hurdles, and the binary nature of clinical trial results. 

Therefore, thorough research and a well-considered investment strategy are essential. 

To combat this, our Future Shapers portfolio has a dedicated Investment Committee Team who are incredibly agile. 

They have the ability to adapt swiftly to market changes, enabling them to optimise portfolio performance and minimise risk effectively.


Things to Consider When Investing in New Technology

When considering investments in new technology, it’s essential to approach with both enthusiasm for innovation and a strategic understanding of the associated risks and opportunities. 

Here’s a detailed look at things to consider:

Evaluate the potential market size and growth for the new technology. 

Consider whether the technology addresses a genuine need or is likely to become a must-have in its intended market. 

A larger market potential often translates to higher revenue opportunities​​.

Assess the competitive environment of the technology sector you are considering. 

Identify the key players, their market share, and the unique value proposition of the new technology compared to existing solutions. 

Understand whether the technology has a sustainable competitive advantage​​​​.

New technology sectors can be heavily impacted by regulatory changes. 

Consider the current regulatory environment and any anticipated changes that could affect the market. 

For example, data privacy laws have significant implications for tech companies in sectors like cloud computing and AI​​.

Evaluate the technical feasibility and the stage of development of the new technology you’re looking to invest in. 

Consider whether the technology is proven and if there are any major technical hurdles that need to be overcome for it to be successful​​​​.

Moreover, it’s important to recognise that not all emerging technologies achieve mainstream adoption. 

Some may only enjoy temporary popularity, turning out to be fads. 

An example of this phenomenon is 3D printing, which, despite its revolutionary potential, has not become as ubiquitous in consumer applications as initially anticipated. 

This underscores the importance of discerning between technologies with lasting impact and those that might not sustain long-term interest or utility.

Analyse the financial health of the company or companies developing the new technology. 

Look at their revenue growth, profitability, cash flow, and R&D spending. 

Additionally, assess the stock’s valuation to ensure you’re not overpaying for potential future growth​​​​.

Consider how quickly the technology is being adopted and any barriers that could slow its adoption, such as high costs, technical complexity, or lack of consumer awareness.

While high adoption rates can signal a technology’s potential success, notable barriers present challenges that necessitate thoughtful strategic approaches to address. 

It’s worth noting that investments within the Future Shapers portfolio often reside at the early stages of the S-curve. 

This positioning suggests they are in the initial phase of adoption, where growth is starting to accelerate, highlighting the importance of navigating early obstacles to unlock their full potential.

Consider your investment horizon and exit strategy. New technology investments can take longer to mature, so you’ll need to be prepared for a long-term commitment. 

For our Future Shapers portfolio, we recommend an investment timeframe of at least 7 years to allow for the full potential of disruptive technologies to unfold and significantly impact the market. 

Given the nature of emerging tech, developments and advancements can lead to exponential growth but might require patience to navigate through cycles of innovation and market adoption. 

Think about how and when you might exit your investment, particularly if the market environment changes or if the technology fails to meet expectations​​​​.
