Each week, BusinessDesk and the NZ Herald’s Cooking the Books podcast tackles a different money problem. Today, it’s the trends fund managers are watching, and banking on. Hosted by Frances Cook.

They say that change is the only constant, which is particularly true in the investing world. 

One moment there’s a hot stock rocketing in price, the next minute, it's down, and it’s on to the next one. 

Investing well amid all the noise requires the ability to step back, take the long view and decide what’s actually a trend likely to last.

That’s precisely what fund managers do, and some spicy choices have caught their attention recently, from weight-loss drugs like Ozempic to renewable electricity. 

So, what are they watching? Should you be doing the same? 

For the latest podcast, I talked to Nathan Field, global equities portfolio manager for Generate.
