Disruptive Technology is a broad catchphrase used to describe any recent innovations that have far-reaching potential to dramatically change an existing industry, product, or service and/or create an entirely new one. The pace of technological advancement has been accelerating and we’re now making leaps in a matter of months and years that would have previously taken us decades to complete. Broadly speaking, disruptive technologies are ones that allow for: dramatic cost declines, improved user experience, and some sort of democratization of products and services previously reserved for only a select group. Disruptive technology can be very difficult to capture with a traditional benchmark because it often spans companies operating in different sectors across various geographies.
There are a number of foundational innovations that we’ve embraced in recent years that have helped fuel the ever-increasing development of disruptive technologies, and these are:
- Alternative Energy
- Big Data
- Artificial Intelligence
- Driverless Cars
- Genome Sequencing.
While it can be very difficult to pinpoint which technology will drive the next big wave of disruption, investors can take a broad-based approach with ETFs and invest in a basket of securities that span multiple trends and innovations.
