Thematic investing FAQS
What is thematic investing?
- Thematic investing is a way of investing in financial products classified by international market trends. This type of investment takes into account the potential to affect our day to day and produce changes in the future that these trends could have, beyond the more traditional criteria such as, for example, past performance, etc.
- Furthermore, through the strategic grouping financial products into trends, thematic investing lets you invest in themes that align with your interests and that can be adapted to your philosophy.
How does thematic investing differ from other forms of investment?
- The main difference between thematic investing and other forms of investment is that thematic investing focuses on identifying trends with a potential for the future. These trends reflect the contemporary challenges facing our society, such as climate change, aging populations, mobility, future food security and more.
- At Banco Santander, our investment strategies are rooted in comprehensive research reports conducted by our team of analysts.
What factors should be considered in a thematic investment?
- It is important to understand the purpose of each theme, as you will identify with it more or less depending on how it aligns with your values and beliefs. We also need to consider our understanding of the financial product and our risk aversion, as there are a variety of investment options available.
What types of assets can be invested in through themes?
- Each theme offers a wide range of investment options, including equities, ETFs and fixed-income bonds. Our team of analysts conducts thorough research on all options before incorporating them into our themes, being based on analysis reports.
How can I invest in themes?
- You can invest in the financial products of the available themes via your online banking (website and app) or in person at any branch.
Are the themes always the same?
- In today's ever-evolving world, Santander believes in being agile and responsive to the shifting landscape. Therefore, new themes will be added depending on international market trends.
