Key themes and growth drivers influencing the UK economy

In these uncertain times it has never been more important for us to nurture and support growth companies. Our economy must recoup the considerable costs of recent crises and our firm belief is that this can only be achieved by stimulating productivity in our great nation’s innovators, disrupters and challengers.

The Singer Growth Economy highlights opportunities across four overarching themes; Health & Wellbeing of the Population, Transition to a Sustainable Economy, Innovation & Emerging Technologies and Geopolitics & Demographics. Within these themes we have identified what we believe to be the most powerful growth drivers shaping the future of our economy, playing out not over months, or even years, but over decades.

The Singer Growth Economy Themes
