Sneak preview…

Naturally, the software stocks providing the digital infrastructure for the future of work — such as Zoom Video Communications [ZM], Microsoft [MSFT] and Slack [WORK], to name a few — have seen their share prices boom. But the shift to remote working won't just benefit the share prices of companies that are providing the right tools.

No matter the industry, the pandemic has forced companies to rethink what the future of work will look like. Fashion retailers have had to reconsider how they let customers try on clothes, while restaurant operators have had to redesign their spaces to accommodate socially distanced dining. With a greater emphasis on ecommerce, warehouse space is now prime real estate, and logistics companies are finding themselves busier than ever.

We're looking at the longer term, the emerging companies and those that aren't household names but underpin all the technology that enables successful remote working.
