Now I found myself not only questioning the value of active versus passive management but also pondering how AI fit into the investment picture—both as an investment and as an investment tool. I decided it was time to follow my dream and become part of the AI revolution.

I started researching companies that were focused on AI, and the one that immediately stood out from the crowd was ROBO Global. As someone who has been covering technology my whole career, I definitely don’t suffer from shiny object syndrome.

But ROBO Global was different. The creator’s of the world’s first robotics-specific index, ROBO Global is focused solely on robotics, automation, and AI (RAAI). Plus, they combine a passion for fundamental analysis with an index rules-based approach. It seemed to be a perfect marriage.

As I began talking to the team at ROBO Global, I was impressed with how thoughtful they were in their portfolio construction. First, the sheer caliber of intellect and pedigree of every member of the team makes ROBO Global unique. Second, while most funds are made up of analysts who are looking only at the numbers behind the investments, ROBO Global’s executive team and advisory board members are focused on delivering great products and solutions while also giving investors the opportunity to play an active role in advancing robotics, automation, and AI and, ultimately, in helping change the world for the better.

Once I knew I’d found the perfect fit, I jumped ship—but I didn’t jump far. By bringing my experience in active management into the mix at ROBO Global, I’m finally able to combine my passions for numbers and AI. Plus, I am just as excited about the new products we are developing as I am about the future of AI and witnessing the change it is driving around the globe.

Everything I’ve done in my career has been about pushing the boundaries of technology, and my role at ROBO Global is no exception. Perhaps what’s most exciting about the opportunity to live and breathe the world of robotics and AI is the sheer pace of evolution and growth it represents. I love knowing that new opportunities are just around the corner.

I love knowing that the companies and technologies we are focused on today will change how we live in the next 5, 10, and 50 years. And I love knowing that our efforts today have the potential to change lives for the better tomorrow. It’s an evolution I’m thrilled to be a part of, and I simply can’t wait to see what the future brings.
