AXA Framlington Biotech

A pure thematic fund that gives investors access to both large and small companies in the rapidly growing biotechnology space


The fund will invest in the fast growing space of biotechnology, a sector which has made vast leaps in the detection and treatment of diseases in recent times. The manager will utilise a combination of scientific and investment analysis to build a portfolio consisting of major biotech players as well as smaller companies which have the potential for very high returns. We like the fund as it gives us access to an exciting, fast growing sector with positive implications for mankind and the manager has performed well versus peers.
