Investing Today in Tomorrow’s Transforming World


Unprecedented forces of structural change are reshaping societies, economies and technologies, and creating a spectrum of compelling investment opportunities. Thematic investing is about identifying secular trends and giving investors the opportunity to benefit from them.


But our approach is different. We offer concentrated exposure to individual themes through baskets of stocks spanning sectors, industries, and geographies critical to a trend's evolution. These companies are chosen for their potential to outperform as government policies, corporate strategies and innovations take shape. We invest for a finite period of 1-3 years to capture a theme’s greatest return potential, while also being tax-efficient.  


We will periodically introduce new thematic baskets, designed to offer the best growth opportunities. 




Alicia Levine, Head of Investment Strategy and Equity at BNY Mellon Wealth Management, discusses why today may be time to seize thematic investing opportunities, as governments roll out new policies and programs and companies position themselves to be winners in a transforming world.



Prior Thematic Opportunities





U.S. manufacturing is on the rebound, as domestic companies are reducing their dependence on overseas production and bringing factories back home. This development, as well as $1 Trillion of government tax credit and funding support over the next decade, could generate $500 billion of annual economic activity, leading to significant investment opportunities.

One of the largest ever mobilizations of global capital is underway as government policies give corporates incentives to invest in the transition to green energy. Today is the time to invest, when companies are just beginning to partner strategically to benefit from tax credit programs.

The aging of global populations is a secular trend driven by improvements in disease diagnosis, therapeutic efficacy, and education about healthier lifestyle choices. It’s also a demographic shift that’s transforming societies and creating a “longevity economy” aimed at extending the number of years people can remain healthy.

Potential Risks


Daily pricing: On a daily basis, the Delta-one note will move up and down 1:1 with the underlying basket of stocks. Due to market factors, the Delta-one note will be valued at intrinsic value only at maturity.

Default by issuer: The delta-one note is structured by BNY Mellon Wealth Management, as debt, which is similar to holding a bond. BNY Mellon Wealth Management receives no compensation from the Issuer. All payments on the delta-one notes are subject to the creditworthiness of the Issuer and Guarantor, if any. BNY Mellon Wealth Management will continually monitor the credit quality of the issuer and make appropriate recommendations as needed.

Limited liquidity: BNY Mellon Wealth Management will source liquidity both from the issuers and the secondary market. However, liquidity is not guaranteed. Investors should be prepared to hold the security through maturity.

Dividends/gains excluded: While dividends are not paid, there is an adjustment factor, paid at maturity, that will incorporate some of their value. The amount is specified upfront and fixed for the duration of the note.

Tax considerations: A tax opinion is included in the prospectus of each deal, which is typical of long-term capital gains for investments held for more than one year.


Returns of a Delta One Note will differ based on expiration dates and market conditions. Investors should read the applicable information statement or prospectus documents (including prospectus supplements and pricing supplements) carefully before investing.
