ROBO Global Quarterly Review Q1 2020
The ROBO Global innovation indices outperformed during the worst quarter for global equities since 2008. The Robotics & Automation Index (ROBO) declined 20% in Q1, while the Artificial Intelligence Index (THNQ) lost 15%, and the Healthcare Technology & Innovation Index (HTEC) was down 11%. We expect the COVID-19 crisis to remain a relatively short-term event. And with strong balance sheets and a small-mid-cap tilt, the ROBO Global index portfolios are well-positioned to continue to outperform in the current environment. In this report, we discuss key sector trends and big movers.
