Biotechnology Breakthroughs ETFs

Biotechnology Breakthroughs ETFs
  • Pininvest Analysis

Because R&D in biotechnology is complex and the rate of drug approval remains uncertain, investment strategies followed by ETFs adopt two distinct models

  • broad based funds cast a wide net, as poor performing clinical-stage companies could become tomorrow's stars  - with more than 190 holdings, iShares fund IBB/NASDAQ limits risk exposure through diversification 
  • focused funds, targeting break-through technologies, advanced treatments of rare diseases or clinical-stage research, accept high risk exposure (volatility) in the hope of above average performance 

Including funds based on either models as well as leveraged funds, the theme is benchmarked with the iShares NASDAQ Biotechnology ETF IBB/NASDAQ 

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
