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.

Self-Driving Car Companies For Investors Looking to Tap Into AV Tech

In parts of Arizona, “fully” autonomous ride-hailing services from Waymo One are now available to the general public. This has come after months of testing by Waymo, the autonomous driving technology company owned by Alphabet, Google’s parent company. Until recently, Waymo One’s fully autonomous service was only available to a select group of participants who signed an NDA to take part in a trial study in Phoenix. The newly available ride-hailing cars are particularly notable because there are no supervised safety operators in the front seat of the vehicles. They are fully autonomous, marking a huge milestone for Waymo, and for the entire autonomous vehicle industry.
