There are at least three companies in the FTSE 100 I believe could significantly enhance my wealth by 2030. These firms have a strong position in their respective markets and have scope to expand in the years ahead. 

FTSE 100 retailer

The first blue-chip business on my list is JD Sports (LSE: JD). This retailer occupies a strong niche in the UK sports footwear market. It is also expanding rapidly around the world. It is one of the few UK retailers that has been able to take market share in the US, a traditionally difficult market for these businesses. 

Inflation Is Coming

Inflation is out of control, and people are running scared. But right now there’s one thing we believe Investors should avoid doing at all costs… and that’s doing nothing. That’s why we’ve put together a special report that uncovers 3 of our top UK and US share ideas to try and best hedge against inflation… and better still, we’re giving it away completely FREE today!

Of course, there is still a risk that the firm could hit a wall. It could end up overexpanding, and this might lead to losses for investors. 

Management has outlined its plans to expand further in the years ahead by pushing into new markets and opening more stores. While the stock is a bit on the pricey side, I think it is worth paying a premium to buy into JD’s growth over the next few years. These are the reasons I would buy the business for my portfolio. 

International expansion

I would also acquire FTSE 100 business Ashtead (LSE: AHT). The equipment rental sector can be fantastic. The initial capital costs can be demanding, but after the equipment is acquired, a company can lease it out again and again, earning a high return on investment.

Ashtead has been reinvesting its profits back into growth over the past decade, and it now has a strong footprint in both the UK and US.

Unfortunately, the nature of this market means the firm is highly exposed to the economic environment. A sudden downturn in construction activity could significantly impact the business and its growth potential.

Management may have to re-evaluate growth plans in this scenario, and the company’s expansion may not live up to my expectations. 

Despite this risk, I believe there will always be demand for equipment rental services in the UK and US. That is why I would acquire the stock right now. 

Buy, build, sell

The final company I believe has the potential to grow my wealth significantly over the next couple of years is Melrose Industries (LSE: MRO). The engineering group has a strong track record of buying, improving and selling engineering enterprises. Its most recent acquisition was engineering conglomerate GKN

This strategy has produced strong returns in the past, although there is no guarantee this will continue. There will always be the chance Melrose could find itself over its head and unable to manage an acquisition. In this scenario, the FTSE 100 company may have to ask shareholders for additional cash. 

Still, with the outlook for the economy improving, I believe the engineering group has scope to grow substantially over the next couple of years. 

Is this little-known company the next ‘Monster’ IPO?

Right now, this ‘screaming BUY’ stock is trading at a steep discount from its IPO price, but it looks like the sky is the limit in the years ahead.

Because this North American company is the clear leader in its field which is estimated to be worth US$261 BILLION by 2025.

The Motley Fool UK analyst team has just published a comprehensive report that shows you exactly why we believe it has so much upside potential.

But I warn you, you’ll need to act quickly, given how fast this ‘Monster IPO’ is already moving.
