Investing in Big Data trends: Cyber security and cloud computing

Thursday 19 May from 8.30am to 9.15am

Perhaps no investment theme has been more important to the business world since the COVID-19 outbreak than Big Data. As workplaces went remote, access to key documents, applications, and computing resources made cloud computing essential. Global X expect the global economy to shift further into the cloud over time, though connectivity can be both a blessing and a curse, as readily accessible files can become an easy target for malicious actors. Fortifying cybersecurity measures are therefore necessary investments to protect remote treasure troves of sensitive data.

Nuclear energy and uranium moving into the mainstream

Thursday 21 July from 8.30am to 9.15am

With aggressive timelines to reach net-zero carbon emissions and global energy consumption expected to increase by 50% through 2050, governments are exploring all options in the next generation of power production. While much of the focus has been on renewables like solar and wind, there may still be a critical role for nuclear energy in the global energy mix, given that it’s clean, reliable, and yes, safe. Importantly, nuclear power is gradually shedding the stigma attached to it, helped by significant improvements in technology and safety measures. And as it gains broader acceptance, we believe nuclear energy is raising the investment profile of uranium, its key fuel input.

Investing in clean and renewable energy as a solution to climate change fuel input

Thursday 22 September from 8.30am to 9.15am

Planet Earth’s climate is changing for the worse. Heightened concentrations of atmospheric CO2 are driving long-term temperature trends upward, resulting in devastating environmental impacts. The causal relationship between human-produced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and such impacts is “unequivocal,” according to the International Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) landmark 2021 report (AR6).  But just as human activity created the current climate predicament, our innovation and investment may also be the antidote. Among the most critical aspects of global decarbonization efforts will be transitioning to clean and renewable energy sources, a shift which will require investing tens of trillions of dollars in the coming decades.
