Megatrends are large social, economic, or political changes that are slow to form - however, once in place, their influence can last decades. Demographics are a type of megatrend, and even though these trends are somewhat easy to spot, few, if any, investors focus enough on demographic trends as they make their investment decisions.
During his investment career, Dr. Bob Froehlich has had the opportunity to travel the globe. He has witnessed firsthand the evolving demographic changes taking place around the world. These unique demographic trends can create investment opportunities, if you understand the link between demographics and investments.
DR. BOB FROEHLICH is the Vice Chairman of Scudder Investments. Scudder Investments is part of Deutsche Asset Management, which is the global asset management unit of Deutsche Bank. He also serves as Chairman of the Investor Strategy Committee. This committee is the first of its kind on Wall Street, providing a link between investment trends, investment strategies, and, ultimately, investment products for the individual investor. Dr. Bob appears regularly on CNBC, FOX, CNN, and Bloomberg TV. He has delivered investment speeches on six different continents and in all fifty states. He receives more than 1,000 speaking requests a year. Dr. Bob is the only Wall Street strategist who has both opened and closed the markets on Wall Street for the NASDAQ and the NYSE.
