Global Health Care ETFs

Global Health Care ETFs
  • Pininvest Analysis

With a bird's eye view on healthcare, our theme points funds in 3 sub-categories , differentiated by their volatility but not always by performance

  • topping the volatility range, biotech funds are top performers along with obesity fighting Janus Henderson SLIM/NASDAQ
  • at the other end of the volatility spectrum, global healthcare ETFs from the major providers achieved significant return with low volatility - offering investors a clear-cut alternative
  • pharmaceutical funds - with weaker returns and middling volatility - have been less favored by the market as the major firms seem to be grappling with complex strategic options - check our Pharmaceuticals Majors theme for details 

Our ETF market sector themes present a cross-sectional view of equity trends – in terms of market coverage, size and style. We hope to achieve a fair coverage of ETFs in each category, which is a work in progress

We do not receive any commission or other form of compensation from the providers included in our 'Funds' presentation
