DBS I.D.E.A. Fund

There is an old saying: “Fortune favours the bold”. Those who dare to innovate, disrupt, enable, and adapt are oftentimes highly rewarded. This is true now more than ever as new technologies constantly redefine the way we live, work, and play.

The DBS Chief Investment Office strives to be on top of such trends and has introduced a thematic strategy, coined I.D.E.A., an acronym which stands for Innovators, Disruptors, Enablers, and Adapters. This proprietary strategy seeks to identify companies that challenge the status quo, embrace the digital world, transform, and thrive.

We are also pleased to introduce the DBS I.D.E.A. Fund, an investment strategy designed to identify secular winners in the digital world.


Key Fund Highlights:

  • I.D.E.A. is a proprietary approach of the DBS Chief Investment Office (CIO) in identifying secular winners riding the global digitalization wave.
