Investment Strategy

The investment strategy is to reflect the diverse impact of technology. The benefits of technology are being felt not just in consumers’ personal lives, but in productivity and revenue gains for businesses in areas including supply chain management, logistics, improved automation and manufacturing.

Further, Tech Stars gives you a stake in some iconic names that have the firepower to acquire up and coming new entrants and gain market share rapidly.

With record high cash balances, these companies can invest in innovative R&D projects (think Google’s moonshot projects) to continue growth momentum.
