Second Quarter 2017 Investment Outlook

  • Perhaps nowhere is the effect of technology on environmental stewardship more apparent than in renewable energy. And possibly no facet of our lives is more affected by technology than healthcare.
  • The drivers of many environmental and other sustainability-related markets are economic, not political. Innovation and advances in technology factor into those economic drivers alongside many long-term investment fundamentals.
