The 2008-2009 market meltdown and house price collapse has reset the credit and property cycles, and smart investors are now looking for the upside.

But Where Will the Next Bull Runs Come From, and How Can Investors Take Advantage?

The world is now facing staggering change, including exponential performance growth in many technologies. We can expect computers that are smarter than people, self-driven cars and a truly intelligent Internet. We are also facing a biotechnological revolution enabling personalized medicine, fourth generation biofuels, radical extension of human life expectancy, exponential growth in farm yields, and even the recreation of extinct species. Furthermore, our energy sector is facing a complete transformation which will eventually make our energy supply limitless. Meanwhile, our population will grow, age and urbanize, and - largely due to emerging market growth – global purchasing power will have quadrupled by 2050. What will this mean for commodity prices, the environment and growth sectors such as real estate, global finance and luxury?

Supertrends explains not only what will happen, but also how and why. Having himself run several hugely profitable funds through seeking out long term opportunities and having set up and sold several award winning technology and new media companies, author Lars Tvede shows readers how to identify and profit from the investment opportunities of the future. If you need to be prepared for the rest of your life, this is the book for you.

From the Inside Flap:

“Supertrends is more than an intellectual highly inspiring book. It hijacks you from short term consensus and powerfully redirects your thinking towards future perspectives. A must-read for all executives ready to challenge the status quo in order to have sound business visions.” – Dr Christian De Prati, Chief Executive Officer, Merrill Lynch Capital Markets AG

“In 2009, I visited Lars Tvede to delver a keynote address to an elite group of technology investors and entrepreneurs. He impressed the audience with an analysis of trends emerging in the Energy, Biotech and IT sectors. In Supertrends, Lars has expanded on these ideas, doing a ‘deep dive’ into global trends, demographic change and technology advances, and his conclusions pinpoint even more opportunities for the astute investor. It is a must-read for investors who are trying to understand where to find opportunity on a rapidly changing world!” – Farley Cash Duvall, Former Managing Director, Red Herring EMEA and current CEO of White Bull GmbH – Zurich, Switzerland

“It takes a keen sense of analysis and expansive creativity to think in terms of the next 40 years. Whether or not one buys into the crystal ball that Lars Tvede has developed, few could challenge that this is a unique and comprehensive look at out collective futures. Further, with the breadth of insights offered, there is something of value for everyone. Read it, then think about it.” – Barry A. Matsumori, Vice President, Wireless Connectivity, Qualcomm, Inc.

“A must-read not only for business captains and investors, but for anybody interested in today’s and tomorrow’s world.  Lars Tvede’s new book develops a mind-boggling – and refreshingly optimistic! – vision of the future. The book is exciting, thought-provoking, thrilling and fun!” – Ole Skov, former Managing Partner, Accenture
