In China, there is a lot of stress over the big technology companies lately. At the same time, the American counterparts take attention with ever new course records. Not for nothing remember, therefore, many investors think that the train has traversed in the sector and get an entry now too late. And I can definitely understand this point. Nevertheless, there is currently no way past the industry for me.

The big American tech companies dominate markets like no company previously in history. With groundbreaking services and products as well as easy to use solutions for the customers, they have secured the lion's share in their respective areas. In addition, more and more smaller companies are gaining importance with innovations around digitization.

Big Tech Companies Helped Fund Far-Right Groups Pushing for Texas Abortion Ban

  Big Tech Companies Helped Fund Far-Right Groups Pushing for Texas Abortion Ban Corporate backlash to the Texas abortion ban has so far been narrow and targeted, but one notably quiet sector has plenty of room—and money—to work with: Big Tech. A review of public disclosures from Facebook, Google, and Amazon shows the tech giants have for years funded some of the most influential conservative political organizations and dark money groups responsible for the war on abortion rights. Those groups include The Federalist Society, the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, the Committee for Justice, and the Republican Attorneys General Association.

Tech belongs to the future

Walter Price, the manager of the Allianz Technology Trust, it has recently highly highlighted:

"in our view, the technology sector benefits even longer for a strong tailwind. In our opinion, this should continue to provide an attractive long-term increase in value. For us, there is no question that the COVID 19 crisis will drive the use of technology. It will also change the way we live and work in the future.

In addition, many companies have trouble finding workers to satisfy customer demand. They therefore need technology solutions to improve the productivity of the limited personnel. As companies have to reduce their costs and improve their productivity, we expect rising demand for innovative and more productive solutions such as cloud, software AS-A service, artificial intelligence, cyber security, etc.

How to invest in the industry

to buy the whole industry now I considered difficult. For this, many companies are simply too high. But at the moment I buy shares from Amazon (WKN: 906866) by austerity plan and also Alphabet (WKN: A14Y6F) and Facebook (WKN: A1JWVX) I do not consider overpriced and therefore they count to my five Biggest single items.

In addition, I use the theme funds bit Global Internet Leaders, Digital Leaders Fund and EM Digital Leaders more intensively on smaller companies that can shape digitization over the next few years. The fund managers are increasingly working with the digital track in the form of business data to beat the market.
