Thematic Signals Vol. 7, #9

Welcome one and all!

We’re starting something new with Thematic Signals. Don’t worry, we’re not abandoning the ripped-from-the-headlines proof points that support our investment themes and strategies. Instead, we’re going to build on that by going one step further as Tematica’s Chief Investment Officer, Chris Versace, and Head of Indexing, Mark Abssy, discuss some of those signals while weaving in other observations and data points along the way.

Sounds like a good conversation, and that’s what we’re aiming to deliver twice a month in a podcast or as we like to call them, a Tematicast (teh-matt-icast).

Below you’ll find the links to the articles we discuss in this edition of the Tematicast, and below you’ll find links to other recent Thematic Signals as well as those for our thematic indices. Thanks for tuning in and if you want to spread the word about what we’re doing, we wouldn’t mind that a bit.
