#50 - Jay Jacobs - Lithium, Clean Tech, Genomics & the Benefits of Investing in Themes
On Friday 12th February I spoke to Jay Jacobs, the Head of Research & Strategy at Global X. Global X is an innovative provider of thematic ETFs – an industry segment that shot to prominence last year, netting record returns. Jay - frequently cited on platforms like CNBC, Bloomberg, and The Wall Street Journal - leads Global X’s research efforts, identifying potential growth opportunities, and instigating the development of new, industry-first products.
Jay talked through the firm’s Thematic Growth ETFs, a range of funds that gives investors exposure to anything from Genomics, to Lithium, to Artificial intelligence. Jay outlines the benefits of a thematic investment approach, and finishes by highlighting his ‘Themes to Watch’. Enjoy the episode!
