Ask the Experts: The Age of Disruption

1) What Is Disruptive Innovation?
- Broadly, it is about a whole lot of things together but it all revolves around the idea of carving a brand new market.
- At Lion Global Investors, we look at various sectors, including hardware & software innovation, medical breakthroughs, etc.
- These are some examples of disruptors (i.e. disruptive companies) that challenge business models and traditional ways of doing business to bring about innovation and growth.

2) You mentioned smart beta and fundamental factor investing in your investment process. Could you please elaborate?
- We went around the world seeking disruptors out there and thought of how to create the index.
- We came up with a 5-factor model and used these factors to sieve out 500 disruptor names with 100 stocks to present to clients.

3) Will Donald Trump’s economic policies derail disruptive innovation?
- He wants to cut taxes, bring back jobs to the US, increase infrastructure spending, control border immigration, etc.
- Disruptors are investing a lot of money into US. E.g. Amazon pledged to create 100,000 jobs in the next 18 months
- This is in line with Trump's vision, therefore not derailing disruptive innovation
- Conclusively, disruption is just at the beginning of a huge wave
