ROBO Global Quarterly Review Q4 2020

The ROBO Global Innovation Indices ended 2020 with a bang, largely outperforming global equities.

The Robotics & Automation Index (ROBO) returned 45.3% for the year, the Artificial Intelligence Index (THNQ) increased 68.2%, and the Healthcare Technology & Innovation Index (HTEC) rose 66.6%. While the turbocharging of digitization trends will likely continue in 2021, we also expect a broadening of the economic recovery and with M&A accelerating, the setup for robotics, AI and healthcare technologies looks attractive. In this report, we discuss key trends and big movers across our index portfolios.

We believe our portfolios are well positioned to continue to outperform in this environment, with significant international, small and mid-cap exposure, and a high level of M&A activity. The ROBO strategies are specifically focused on technology disruptors that are positioned to gain share as the digitalization of the economy accelerates, many of which have been massive beneficiaries of this shift—especially companies in the areas of artificial intelligence, factory and logistics automation, enterprise software, and healthcare technologies.
