Across the population surveyed, the top 5 megatrends identified were: digitization and AI, Renewable Energy, Energy Security, Aging Population, and Electric Vehicles and Battery Storage. 

Meanwhile, in Europe, the top three megatrends were as follows:

  • Digitization and AI

The survey once again identified Digitization & AI as the dominant megatrend according to investors, which is recognized as the number 1 megatrend across all regions surveyed – Europe, the Middle East, and the US. Over 8 in 10 major global institutional investors stated they are currently investing in this space or will do in the future.

  • Energy Security

Survey data suggests that investors anticipate the Energy Security theme to continue well beyond the current conflict and believe it will lead to opportunities to invest in domestic energy production in Europe and beyond.

  • Aging Population

For both Europe and Asia, investment in the Healthcare sector is one of the more obvious investment opportunities to engage with this long-term trend.
