The crucial role innovation can play in an investment portfolio

Over the last few years, when talking with your clients about investing, it’s probably safe to say topics like artificial intelligence, the Magnificent 7, and other disruptive technologies have come up.

And it’s easy to understand why.

Not only does innovation represented by these subjects hold the potential to improve our standard of living or revolutionize the way we do business, but it also generates sizeable returns for investors.

Make plans to join Robertson Velez and host Ryan Diamant at this advisor-only webcast on Thursday, June 20, 2024 and learn how innovation can play an important role when having investing conversations with clients. Topics they’ll discuss include:

  • Why innovation should represent a meaningful allocation in any global equity portfolio you construct
  • Why artificial intelligence, Nvidia and the Magnificent 7 continue to be highly relevant
  • Where future opportunities in tech will most likely be found
