Disruptive technologies are changing the way new products and services are being brought to market, which is already being seen in the development of artificial intelligence and robotics. As the number of companies that focus on highly advanced computer integration grows, so does the number of targeted ETF strategies that have been designed to capture the best growth opportunities. Are you future proofing your clients’ portfolios?
In the upcoming Disruptive ETF Virtual Summit, an online virtual conference hosted by ETF Trends on Oct. 18, 2018, Sue Thompson, Head of SPDR Americas Distribution for State Street Global Advisors; Jeremie Capron, Director of Research at ROBO Global; and Catherine Wood, Chief Investment Officer and CEO of ARK Invest, will touch upon why there is no slowing down in Robotics, AI, and Automation; identify the rapid changes and growth opportunities around the world; and help financial advisors apply disruptive themes in portfolios using ETFs.
For example, the SPDR Kensho Intelligent Structures ETF (NYSEArca: XKII), SPDR Kensho Smart Mobility ETF (NYSEArca: XKST) and SPDR Kensho Future Security ETF (NYSEArca: XKFS) may help investors focus on the potential growth opportunity in next-generation technologies.
The Kensho Intelligent Structures ETF follows companies whose products and services are driving innovation behind intelligent infrastructure, such as smart building infrastructure, smart power grids, intelligent transportation infrastructure, and intelligent water infrastructure.
