The infrastructure for these 3 major trends is growing rapidly, but do you know the companies that are best positioned to take advantage of that growth? 5G is coming; which companies are laying out the framework across the U.S. to deliver?
On the upcoming webcast, 5G, Cloud Computing and E-commerce: How to Capture the Growth in ETF Strategies, Sean O’Hara, President, Pacer ETFs Distributors, Pacer ETFs will explore how advisors can capitalize on thematic growth trends and yield opportunities associated with 5G, autonomous vehicles, servers, artificial intelligence, e-commerce and streaming. There is a lot of build out in disruptive technologies today, but advisors need to start lifting the hood of all the ETFs in this area to find which are the best positioned.
For example, Pacer ETFs has recently come out with line of defined solutions to help investors access targeted areas of growth, including the Pacer Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: INDS), Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: SRVR) and Pacer Benchmark Retail Real Estate SCTR ETF (NYSEArca: RTL).
These new real estate focused ETFs help investors gain exposure to the growing e-commerce space by investing in data center and distribution center REITs, along with higher quality retail real estate.
Specifically, SRVR tries to reflect the performance of the Data & Infrastructure Real Estate SCTR Index, which is comprised of cell tower REITs, data center REITs, and similar facilities – these cell towers and data processing centers store the information and handle the orders that start the e-commerce process.
INDS tries to reflect the performance of the Benchmark Industrial Real Estate SCTR Index, which is comprised of real estate investment trusts that specialize in the logistics required to make e-commerce work. The portfolio includes warehouses, distribution centers and similar facilities that allow for e-commerce companies to ship goods to their final destinations, sometimes within hours.
Additionally, RTL tries to reflect the performance of the Benchmark Retail Real Estate SCTR Index, which is made up of shopping centers, shopping malls and similar structures that are thriving enterprises filled with retail establishments and are located in prime locations with quality tenants throughout the country.
