Edmond de Rothschild Fund Global Data celebrates its first anniversary

Big Data is a powerful and structuring investment theme Jacques-Aurélien Marcireau International equity portfolio manager

The attractive growth levels recorded by Big Data-related companies confirm that the solutions they offer are of strategic importance to their clients.

Traditional players from various industries – banking, automotive or healthcare for instance – are extremely active in deploying Big Data related technology, while the companies directly involved in the theme stand out for their constant innovation capabilities.

Our selection of stocks - which include both suppliers and data users - has benefited from this positive environment, enabling us to leverage on this major trend.
