Equity Mates x Fidelity: the investing opportunity in changing demographics

What is a 'cobot' and what does it have to do with investing in demographics?

Demographics are long-term and highly predictable characteristics and trends that impact people in one way or another in their lives. From the pressure an aging population puts on society, to how we supply water sustainably to a growing population, these are trends that affect everyone on the planet.

Investing in companies that are trying to solve some of these demographic trends presents a fascinating investment theme.

Oliver Hextall, portfolio manager of the Fidelity Global Demographics Fund, chats to Equity Mates on what it means to invest in the thematic of Demographics whilst outlining the forecast for this thematic in 2023.
