Technology Investments

Artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, automation, robotics…the list is endless.

If you don’t invest in technology, you’re missing out.

Companies like Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet’s Google now control the world. And you don’t want to miss out on the game-changing investments they bring to the table.

Here, we’ll brief you on all the exciting technology investments we think are worth your time.

Technology runs the world

Technology encompasses every aspect of our lives. From the moment we wake up in the morning we attach ourselves to technology — in a way that would have been unimaginable only a few years ago.

Not only can these technologies create new industries, they can also change the market.

The car industry has made the biggest waves by adopting automation and changing the industry’s production lines. These changes to manufacturing — along with new tech like self-driving cars and the rise of the electric vehicle — will massively disrupt the industry.

Jobs will be created and eliminated in the process. Rolls Royce have recently cut more than a thousand jobs from the production hub in the UK. On this page, we’ll keep you updated on the disruptions and opportunities created.

It is not only the big companies that are changing how we approach technology. 3D printing has expanded in such a way that it has the potential to disrupt manufacturing and design as we know it. 3D printing is already being used to transform car and aircraft production, medical science, dentistry, and fashion. It is now so accessible that 3D printing can be done at home, effectively cutting the manufacturing production line out.

And it’s not just in Silicon Valley, as you might expect. As part of China’s ongoing quest to remake itself as a global economic leader, some of the most exciting tech stories today are emerging from the Middle Kingdom.

China is undergoing a government-backed technological revolution (‘Made in China 2025’) and have taken the lead in AI technology — with a vision to profit from these innovations. They are currently the biggest shareholders in the robotics market, with an estimated net worth of $30 billion.

China is leading the change in robot automation and investors are beginning to take notice.

Automation, renewable energy, ‘the internet of things’ and much more…the new trends in the tech world are almost too many to list, and more arrive every day.

The only question remaining is whether these changes will converge to create new jobs and industries at a time of unprecedented disruption.

We’ll give you the information to answer this question through our daily updates on this page.
