Our long-term investment themes (LTIT) for 2024

We see the key global challenges as: how to sustainably utilise and conserve our global resources; how to provide for the global population, and how to develop key technologies to help us all do this.

As part of our Annual Outlook 2024, we have 11 long-term investment themes (LTIT) grouped into three broad areas: Resource transition, Population support and Next-phase technology.  


The division of the LTIT into these three areas is shown in the figure below.

There are a few changes to our existing themes for 2024. The previous Land Resources theme is split into two separate themes – Circular material use and Sustainable food system. We refocus the previous Millennials and GenZ theme to a more explicitly consumption-related theme – Consumption megatrends. We also add a new theme – Digitisation – to our Next-phase technology group.

        In Europe, Middle East and Africa as well as in Asia Pacific this material is considered marketing material, but this is not the case in the U.S. No assurance can be given that any forecast or target can be achieved. Forecasts are based on assumptions, estimates, opinions and hypothetical models which may prove to be incorrect. Past performance is not indicative of future returns. Performance refers to a nominal value based on price gains/losses and does not take into account inflation. Inflation will have a negative impact on the purchasing power of this nominal monetary value. Depending on the current level of inflation, this may lead to a real loss in value, even if the nominal performance of the investment is positive. Investments come with risk. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise and you might not get back the amount originally invested at any point in time. Your capital may be at risk.
