Germany-based index provider Solactive has started the decade with the launch of a future trends index series.

The Solactive Future Trends Index series seeks to track trends forecasted to lead their respective industries including thematic investing and megatrends that are predicted long-term evolutions in society and economics.

The firm has focused on trends it predicts will last at least the next decade.

The series is divided into four categories: future technologies, future of the environment, future way of life and future health and well-being.

For the launch, the series contains 18 indices that incorporate either specific investment strategies, data based on third-party sources or the processing software ARTIS which analyses the underlying companies to various data sources.

“The Solactive Future Trends provides the means to incorporate the most promising future economic trends into long-term oriented investment strategies.”
