Parvest Disruptive Technology: first of a range of new thematic funds

Disruptive technologies have it in them to alter our lifestyle drastically – indeed in some cases, they have already done so. Their transformational potential, including efficiency gains and new products and services, can involve high growth and create attractive business opportunities that BNP Paribas Asset Management’s new Parvest Disruptive Technology[1] global equity fund seeks to tap.

Innovative technology is transforming the global economy. Examples include mobile internet, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and (big) data analytics, automation and robotics, augmented (AR) and virtual reality (VR), and the internet of things. Among the industry-level trends are e-commerce, home automation and driverless cars, but also mobile banking and blockchain.

Parvest Disruptive Technology is designed to identify those companies that are enabling or benefiting from transformative technology. Its managers conduct rigorous fundamental research, while applying BNPP AM’s environmental, social & governance (ESG) criteria, and monitoring risk continuously.

The Parvest Disruptive Technology fund is the first of a range of new thematic funds. It is managed by our seasoned, US-based investment global specialist and thematic equity sector team and supported by a global network of in-house analysts.

The impact of technological innovation is being felt across a broad range of areas, not just in the technology sector itself. It is having a widespread impact on many aspects of our daily lives, and brings with it many exciting investment opportunities. A portfolio of these stocks should therefore deliver outperformance to investors over the long term.
