    Innovation is the dominant theme in today’s economy and equity markets—and will likely remain so for the next few decades. However, equity investors are not realizing the true potential of this theme. Risk-based and behavioral-based biases, which have caused investors to misprice and underestimate innovation, have resulted in the “Innovation Premium,” a corollary to the “Value Premium.” In fact, the existence of the Value Premium itself is likely explained by the displacement risk of innovation. At the same time, the modern technological revolution represents a revolution of the mind, akin to prior centuries’ revolution of the muscle. Companies that capitalize on these technological breakthroughs offer exponential growth potential. Investors cannot afford to leave return on the table; as such, in this discussion we explore how investors can best harness the Innovation Premium and the disruptive power of technology in their portfolios.
