Tech, Trade Wars and the Market: How to Position Your Portfolio

The escalating rhetoric behind the global trade war is pressuring investment sentiment. However, the supply chain frictions and dampened international trade may not weigh too much on the growth in robotics, automation and artificial intelligence industries.

On the upcoming webcast Tuesday, Aug. 14, Tech, Trade Wars and the Market: How to Position Your Portfolio, Travis Briggs, CEO of ROBO Global U.S., and J.H. Cullum Clark, Director at Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative, will look to the current environment of increased trade barriers, consider the relatively nimble nature of robotics and A.I. in the international markets, and outline a strategy for financial advisors to diversify into this growing industry.

A product like the ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index ETF (NYSEArca: ROBO) provides investors with the ability to gain focused exposure to the growing robotics and artificial intelligence industry.

“Robotics, Automation, and Artificial Intelligence (RAAI) is one of the most compelling investment opportunities of the 21st century. Daily media coverage of intriguing and widely adopted advancements in robotics attracts widespread interest in how these technologies are impacting our daily lives,” according to Robo Global.
