Healthcare has been an above-average performing sector, with the value of its 16 companies in the Top 100 increasing by 23% to USD 4 trillion.

After declining from 2018 to 2020, the market capitalisation of financial sector companies in the Top 100 has risen by 7% to USD 3.9 trillion since then. Whether this trend continues into 2023 will depend on how current macroeconomic uncertainties play out.
