Creating trends - Life extension - Anti-aging - Biotech

An important part of investing is being able to recognize trends and use them to invest your high risk percentage (mine is 10% of the total that i have allocated, that i invest in high risk high reward companies and projects).
For today i will take a look at the companies that research specifically to increase the life span. Just in case you don't know, our life expectancy at the actual moment is increasing with 4 hours per week. Just imagine that.

And i do not talk about this rare "disease" that is slowing aging, or about foundations and charities like Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (Sens) Research Foundation, Ellison Medical Foundation, Paul F Glenn Foundation for Medical Research but about proper companies that are researching difference pathways on their ways to technological immortality

When we talk about U.K. we think at Britain's booming biotech industry. Few facts that are good to know. Venture capital funding went up by 71 per cent to $430bn (£280) in 2014. IPO activity reached £408bn in 2014 - almost equal to the amount raised in the nine previous years. Two IPOs have already happened in 2015. The UK has outperformed the rest of Europe in the last five years. The future look bright in this sector.
