These could be two of the biggest investment themes of the 2020s

Entrepreneur and investor Jim Mellon outlines the two themes that he thinks could be among the biggest investment stories of the 2020s, taken from his presentation at the 2019 MoneyWeek Wealth Summit in November.

Something a bit different for you on this New Year's Eve.

Last month, on Friday 22 November, we hosted the MoneyWeek Wealth Summit in London. It was a huge success many of the attendees told me it was our best event yet.

(Look out for much, much more next year. I'll be telling you more about our plans next month, so watch out for that).

Anyway, one of our guests was the British entrepreneur and investor Jim Mellon. I've known Jim for many years now. He's a regular at our MoneyWeek roundtables, he's a fantastic speaker, and he's always looking for themes and investment ideas that are likely to become the next big thing or what he has termed, "money fountains".

He discussed two such themes at the MoneyWeek Wealth Summit "clean meat" and increasing human longevity. He also threw in some very interesting ideas about how to take advantage of the UK's bargain valuations while we now have a lot more clarity on the political situation than we did just a month ago, I suspect there's still plenty of potential for UK assets.

The good news is that if you didn't make it to the summit in person, now's your chance to catch up on Jim's ideas we're releasing it as a podcast and you can listen to the whole thing here.

Given that we're sitting on the cusp of a new decade, there's no better time to have a listen to an expert talking about two themes that could be among the biggest investment stories of the 2020s.

I hope you enjoy it. Have a cracking New Year, and we'll be back on Thursday 2nd.
