ROBO launches specialist healthcare & AI indices


ROBO Global, the creators of the first ever index to track the global robotics, automation and AI (RAAI) value chain, is launching two new indices focused on healthcare technology and innovation (HTEC) and AI (THNQ).

HTEC, a research driven index portfolio of over 80 best-in-class healthcare technology & innovation companies from around the world, offers one of the most important investment opportunities for the next decade. Healthcare is undergoing a dramatic, technology-driven revolution, with the convergence of robotics, machine intelligence and life sciences which has enabled breakthrough advances. HTEC provides global exposure to companies leading the healthcare technology revolutions.

THNQ, the artificial intelligence index series, provides investors with comprehensive, transparent and diversified benchmark which represent the global value chain of AI technologies and applications. AI has hit an inflection point as exponential gains in computing power and availability of large datasets enable a rapidly expanding range of applications across all sectors of the economy. TNHQ seeks to capture the growth and returns opportunity presented by the advent of AI.
Richard Lightbound (pictured), CEO EMEA, ROBO Global, says: “We launched the ROBO Global Index back in 2013 and since then have continued to innovate and develop. The launch of the new healthcare and AI indices helps investors capture the unique opportunities of fast-growing healthcare technology and artificial intelligence companies around the world, using the same expertly crafted recipe that has bought global success to our robotics and automation index.”
ROBO Global’s robotics, automation and artificial intelligence index, launched in 2013, provides diversified exposure to robotics, automation and AI companies around the world. RAAI are firmly set on long-term growth trajectory, supported by a unique combination of accelerating technology advances and powerful macro factors. Rapid developments in technologies coupled with an aging demographic and the emergence of increasing demanding consumers will continue to drive efforts to boost productivity and quality across RAAI markets.
Lightbound adds: “When developing all of the ROBO Global indices, we put an emphasis on researching and analysing companies making the most impact on their sector, both today and tomorrow, homing in on the disruptors rather than the disrupted. Cutting-edge research and intelligence from distinguished industry experts are what enable us to identify and provide exposure to the best robotics, automation, AI and healthcare innovation companies around the world.”
