Investing in Cultural Evolutions
Konstantin Boehmer, portfolio manager of global fixed income at Mackenzie Investments, joins Ed Harrison to present his long-term macro thesis, based on emerging trends in ESG investing. Boehmer explains that his investment thesis is not about the ESG movement within the investment industry specifically, but rather it is about generational changes and lifestyle choices people are already making. Identifying patterns in business and technology cycles over the last 250 to 300 years, he argues that mankind is on the brink of another technological golden age. Along with the evolution in technology adoption he predicts, he also foresees cultural changes that will lead to actionable investment opportunities based on new priorities in how people choose to live their lives.
