Rethink everything - 28/03/2017

EcoAccountability.580.JPGSome experts believe we have passed a point of no return when it comes to climate change, but if a sustainable, Clean Energy Future is still within reach, whose responsibility is it to make sure it happens?

Traditional agriculture is under threat, largely due to the weight of the world’s growing population. The final part of our three-part series with the Financial Times focuses on aqua agriculture and puts the spotlight on entrepreneurs who are looking to make a difference.
Italian innovator, Sergio Gamberini,  looked to the ocean for an answer to sustainable farming and has found a way to grow tomatoes, beans and lettuce  all under the sea.
This radical approach could be the key to opening up new opportunities and investment in experimental and eco-friendly farming.
Our rethink philosophy serves to highlight visionaries across the globe who are dedicated to leaving a legacy and making a mark on society.

Feeding the world’s population is no easy feat but Bren Smith, US ocean farming pioneer, is looking to tackle this growing issue.  In part three of our collaboration with the Financial Times, we explore farming in an entirely new light.  Enter, ‘3D ocean farming’. It’s sustainable and has the potential to unlock new methods and investments in modern-day farming.
Not only is this initiative green, it has the possibility to create a new gourmet experience as Smith’s experiments explore an array of new, edible plants and shellfish.
Like Bren Smith, at Lombard Odier, we believe in evolving in order to create a impactful society, enrich experiences and  provide the right solutions for our clients.

As investors, we are committed to ensuring that portfolios are positioned for the disruptive economic reality of robots and the new ways that wealth will be created. So as we look towards the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution we ask what we can learn from the first three – steam power of the 1700s, electricity of the 1800s and digitisation of 1900s – and whether this time will, indeed, be as different as many commentators claim.

Monocle.580.jpg

Our rethink philosophy runs deep. We want to offer a fresh perspective on the big questions that our clients and society are concerned with. That’s why our partnership with Monocle, on revaluating city spaces, is so fitting. Together, with Monocle in 2016, we showcased individuals from all over the world, who are reshaping our cityscapes in order to make them more sustainable, inclusive and have the ambition to leave a better legacy for future generations.

Upcoming elections in the Netherlands, France, Italy and Germany threaten new gains for populist and anti-euro parties. Yet Europe’s economy continues to go from strength to strength. We believe the continent’s economic resilience could prove a more powerful market force than politics this year. Meanwhile, we see an important role for the Swiss franc in mitigating political risk.

A revolution in agriculture is needed to feed the world’s growing population.
The second of our three-part series with the Financial Times sees pioneers embracing technology to meet the demand. 
Below we hear about the spectacular yields of crops grown in nutrient solutions rather than soil and how cows, equipped with sensors to check their condition, are producing more milk and breeding more effectively.

Transforming by rethinking is a subject dear to our heart at Lombard Odier. It’s how we have survived more than 40 financial crises. An eye for detail unites precision farming and precision banking.

Rethinking Driving - 01/02/2017

RethinkingDriving.580.jpg

The US government has signaled its backing for self-drive cars. But Silicon Valley has slipped behind in the race for self-driving technology, so who is in pole position now? Could it really be... Volvo? And how long is it until human-controlled vehicles get consigned to museums?
