When people discuss the future of payments, they tend to predict the end of cash. Our view is different. We do not believe that cash will completely go away, but we do recognise that a new, powerful economy for digital payments is being born. An economy that offers speed, agility and convenience, and instils a sensibility that payments can happen seamlessly in the background as we hop in and out of Ubers. We can deduce much about the future of payments from the developing world, where digital wallets abound and have helped integrate thousands of unbanked communities. In the West, ecommerce growth, enthusiastic adoption of transparent payment experiences, and alternative payment methods are driving non-cash transaction momentum, merging with technologies like wearables, biometrics and blockchain, and challenging traditional banks – institutions that have long monopolised payment networks and hindered innovation and technological progress. Fortunately, these strangleholds are now unravelling. COVID-19, especially, has catalysed a cross-generational shift toward contactless payments and digital currencies. Our pioneering investment strategy and ETF – Europe’s new digital payments economy ETF – provides investors with exposure to companies that are creating this digital-first payments economy of tomorrow. The FinTech revolution is ushering in a new era in the way the world pays. For investors, this presents an opportunity.

All financial investments involve an element of risk. Therefore, the value of your investment and the income from it will vary and your initial investment amount cannot be guaranteed.
As many of the companies invested in by PMNT are technology-focussed, PMNT is vulnerable to a cyclical decline in the value of the technology sector as a whole.
Individual companies are subject to intense competition that may negatively impact their revenues and market values and therefore PMNT's value.
PMNT also invests in small publicly-traded companies which may be less mature and therefore more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events and greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger companies, the technology sector as a whole or the stock market as a whole.
PMNT invests in global equity securities. As such, there is a risk of loss arising from exchange rate fluctuations or exchange control regulations.
Other: (1) Third-party service providers (such as the ICAV’s depositary) may go bankrupt and fail to pay money due to PMNT or return property belonging to PMNT. (2) If the Index provider stops calculating the Index or if PMNT's license to replicate the Index is terminated, PMNT may have to be closed. (3) It may not always be possible to buy and sell PMNT's Shares on a stock exchange or at prices closely reflecting the Net Asset Value. (4) There is no capital guarantee or protection on the value of PMNT and investors can lose all the capital invested in PMNT. (5) Please refer to the “Risk Factors” section of the ICAV’s Prospectus and the Fund Supplement.
