While robotics & artificial intelligence will drive industry disruption like we’ve never seen before, it is far too early to pick the winners and losers. Yet, with carefully crafted research, a diversified robotics portfolio is in reach.
On the upcoming webcast, Behind the Machines: Investing in Robotics from a Research Perspective, Jeremie Capron, Director of Research for ROBO Global, and Lisa Chai, Senior Research Analyst for ROBO Global, will explore a behind the machines look, the upcoming players of tomorrow and how advisors can future-proof your clients’ portfolios with disruptive technology.
Specifically, the ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index ETF (NYSEArca: ROBO), the original ETF dedicated to robotics investing, provides investors with the ability to gain targeted exposure to the robotics industry.

“While most funds are made up of analysts who are looking only at the numbers behind the investments, ROBO Global’s executive team and advisory board members are focused on delivering great products and solutions while also giving investors the opportunity to play an active role in advancing robotics, automation, and AI and, ultimately, in helping change the world for the better,” according to ROBO Global.
The ROBO ETF follows the ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index, which provides access to the entire value chain of robotics, automation and artificial intelligence. The ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index is comprised of 97 global companies from 14 countries in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East and offers almost no overlap with traditional equity indices.
Robotics- or automation-related products and services include any technology, service or device that supports, aids or contributes to any type of robot, robotic action or automation system process, software or management.
The robotics ETF’s portfolio may also provide exposure to companies with sustainable growth opportunities, as the underlying ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index has exhibited attractive sales growth, EBITDA growth and earnings-per-share growth. The underlying index has even outperformed the broader technology and S&P 500 index since the 2008 financial downturn.
“Because of the sheer reach of robotics, automation, and AI, the opportunity for investors is huge. The only way companies can survive in this new world is to use these technologies to enable their businesses. Investors who are positioned for this new growth will be tomorrow’s biggest winners,” ROBO Global said in a note.
