The areas of robotics and artificial intelligence will lead the next wave of disruptive technologies and one ETF taking advantage of these vast opportunities is the Innovator Loup Frontier Tech ETF (NYSEArca: LOUP).
LOUP provides exposure to the Loup Frontier Tech Index, which is a rules-based index designed to track the performance of companies with a commanding presence in future technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), computer perception, robotics, autonomous vehicles, virtual/mixed/augmented reality, and similar disruptive innovations.
“What’s really unique about our ETF is we’re really playing into this next wave,” said Gene Munster, Loup Ventures managing partner. “There’s always little waves going on in tech, but every 10 years or so, there’s a big wave and in the case of this next wave, it’s a combination of five things–AI, robotics, self-driving cars, augmented reality, and virtual reality.”

Frontier technologies are innovations emerging from an R&D stage, and beginning to move towards mass-market commercial adoption.
