As technologies advance, investors are able to capitalize on the growth opportunity through targeted ETF strategies.
For instance, 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.
“There’s a technological revolution that’s unfolding today in robotics, automation and A.I.,” Jeremie Capron, Director of Research for Robo Global, said at the 2018 Morningstar Investment Conference.
Robotics and artificial intelligence has been a transformational technology. The declining costs in technology has driven increased robotics investments. Meanwhile, big data has fueled growth in artificial intelligence. The advancements touched upon many industries, helping improve areas like logistics automation, e-commerce growth and healthcare, among others.
“So the idea was really to provide investors with a simple vehicle to capitalize on this trend,” Capron added.
