Defiance ETFs LLC announced the launch of the Defiance Nasdaq Junior Biotechnology ETF (IBBJ), which tracks the Nasdaq Junior Biotechnology Index, offering investors exposure to “junior” companies with a market capitalization below $5 billion.

“At Defiance, we believe in providing the next generation of investors with targeted exposure to disruptive themes.
