Alternative Energy Resources ETFs

Alternative Energy Resources ETFs
  • Pininvest Analysis

The funds have, as a group, performed significantly better than ‘old’ energy investments - our overview of Energy ETFs listed on US exchanges is testimony of the correlation of the later with oil prices on the international market

Alternative Energy funds, initiated in response to investor demand, have chosen to define their mandate fairly broadly by including many indirectly related sub-industries in the portfolios

Apart from a favorable regulatory environment, which is driving the expansion of solar and wind energy sources worldwide, the funds benefit from this diversification, accounting for large allocations to Information Technology (silicon, wafers, solar cells…) along with Industrial Goods (batteries, …) and Base Materials (lithium, cobalt..)

This construct is not the least of the attractive features of ‘Alternatives’

Our ETF US Sectors themes present cross-sectional views of trends in each economic activity We hope to achieve a fair coverage of ETFs in each category, which is a work in progress
