The last decade has been decisive in terms of technological development, thanks to progress that has enabled complete evolution in different fields. In particular, a huge amount of investment has gone into the improvement of the best warfare technologies, now definitively connected and oriented toward artificial intelligence. The largest manufacturers in the world continue to invest in the defense industry, which has become a symbol of innovation and technological prestige, to be understood as the ultimate goal of the greatest technical and notional knowledge.
Doubts about the state of the art in the field of advanced weapons have reappeared with the outbreak of war in Ukraine. However, it can be highlighted that many of the things that may seem distant and futuristic to us are actually well present in the global landscape, especially when confronted with the theme of "defense".
In a period of economic instability, also derived from corresponding geopolitics, the arms industry remains, therefore, a constant for investment because, in part, it is a product of these fragilities. Major manufacturers have experienced a significant rise in the value of their shares as a result of the massive economic resources devoted to the military-industrial sector by the world's greatest powers. Recent increasing public investment in defense has certainly contributed to an upsurge in profits and, in general, in demand for war materiel.
From a banking perspective, all this can be read as a profitable time for investment. Reserving a portion of one's portfolio for highly specialized industries in this domain is a strategy that can prove to be a very profitable source, both in terms of security and profits.
