Why you should invest in emerging technologies.
“Your greatest and most powerful investment strategy is going to be the speed at which you handle the speed of change. That speed of change is trend.” - Ajaero Tony Martins.
The world is developing extremely fast, and new technology is constantly developing. A long and positive stock market trend has now reversed, and the world economy is very much affected by war, high inflation, and high-interest rates. For you as an investor, it is more important than ever to keep up with the emerging technology and invest for the future.
When we talk about emerging technology, this term describes new and fast-growing technologies such as blockchain and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
The biggest opportunities for investing in emerging technologies lie in the private market. Historical data from BlackRock shows that the private market has performed significantly better returns over the years during turbulent markets vs the public market.
Now in troubled times, it may be your opportunity as an individual investor to look at the opportunity to diversify your investment portfolio and invest in the future.
New technologies such as AI and blockchain will completely change how companies operate. For example, look at OpenIA, an AI research and deployment company that aims to ensure that artificial general intelligence benefits all of humanity. Microsoft has invested $10 billion into it. And it took only five days to reach 1 million users on their chatbot ChatGTP.
AI will lead to streamlining work tasks and how we handle data, leading to reduced costs for the company and better profitability.
The same with blockchain technology. Blockchain makes it possible to carry out transactions and ownership changes faster and more efficiently without the need for third parties.
The opportunities in the private market are enormous, but it is also extremely difficult for a smaller individual investor to participate in these investments due to the high entry tickets.
In a survey by CAIA Association, the most mentioned challenge when allocating to private markets was access to good deals. This shows the importance of being part of the right community with the right network.
The best way for you as a smaller investor to participate in the private market is to join an investment community. Here you gain access to other like-minded investors with the right network and expertise.
By joining an investment community where members pool capital into one big capital pool and invest together, you, as individual investors, will get access to investment opportunities you would not have been able to get on your own.
At Finpeers, we offer a global investment community for investors who want to access tokenized investment opportunities in the private equity market.
