Infrastructures & Industrial Innovation ETFs

Infrastructures  & Industrial Innovation ETFs
  • Pininvest Analysis

Funds invested in infrastructure companies are


  • global, including developed market securities as well as emerging markets


  • focused on US listed companies 


Secondary ranking sets apart funds invested in specialized companies – such as water infrastructure, environmental protection or electrical grid

The benefit of specialization  over funds invested globally and the exposure to higher average volatility (risk) are correlated with the fund management option (active or passive)


Some global ETFs include the powerful engineering conglomerates from emerging markets (Brazil, India, China…), likely to benefit most from expanding economies and growing expectations, both in their home markets and in vaster regions, where they gear up for stiff competition with more established global firms - with the Chinese 'Belt and Road'  - OBOR - a case in point

The positive market perception, especially for water infrastructure and preservation, appears to be a long term trend benefitting firms in global markets and, following the latest elections in the U.S., domestic infrastructure projects may be an opportunity for bipartisan effort in Congress
