Our Megatrends+ Investment Playlist aims to maximise returns through an actively managed portfolio that invests in the transformative forces shaping our future

This Investment Playlist follows a thematic approach, aiming to deliver returns from long-term trends identified by BlackRock, set to transform the global economy, businesses, and societies.

Key Features:

    • 6/7 risk score
    • Asset allocation from BlackRock
    • Actively managed

Gather are excited to be one of the first to bring these opportunities to investors in the UK
