2020 was an extraordinary year. The COVID-19 pandemic has made 'working from home', zooming in for meetings, online schooling as mundane as online shopping. Adoption of technology and innovation has been quicker than ever, necessitated by the highly contagious and lethal nature of the virus.
At the individual level, the 'new normal' has led to a change in consumption patterns. From online shopping and online banking we have made great strides to include online schooling into our daily lives. Just like we adopted edtech, we have also integrated Zoom and Google Meet to transform our home-office into a legit workplace. With all these changes in the work patterns, we no longer need those extra pairs of business suits or the formal shoes like we did pre-COVID. Makeup is lasting much longer than it used to and travelling for work (even otherwise) is still not imminent. More time at home has translated into moving out of the smaller city apartments into larger sub-urban houses for some and has definitely led to a spike in demand for home improvement goods (furniture, plants etc).
If consumption patterns are changing (and are likely to be sticky even post vaccine), what does it mean in terms of the future of Global Investments? Edtech, e-retailers, ESG investments have already seen a boost but what are the nuances of each of these and also the pros and cons? What is the future of cities with employees having greater flexibility to work from home even post vaccine?
