Traders and investors have a multitude of opportunities for theme investing. That is, ETFs are structured to invest in companies that are part of an industry, such as Biotech, Internet, Aerospace, etc. One such example is the SPDR® S&P Kensho Smart Mobility ETF.
According to the State Street Global Advisors’ website, this ETF “seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the total return performance of the S&P Kensho Smart Transportation Index (the “Index”).”
“Seeks to track an index that is designed to capture companies whose products and services are driving the innovation behind smart transportation, which includes the areas of autonomous and connected vehicle technology, drones and drone technologies used for commercial and civilian applications, and advanced transportation tracking and transport optimization systems.” More details are available here: https://www.ssga.com/us/en/individual/etfs/funds/spdr-sp-kensho-smart-mo...
