Harnessing the Power of Sector Investing Through ETFs

Investing in sectors can align portfolios with broader market trends, giving exposure to specific factors and styles.

Sectors are particularly well suited to target certain economic variables and, when accessed through ETFs, investors can implement macroeconomic views simply and cost-effectively.2

  • Sectors offer a selective exposure with opportunities to potentially benefit from significant return dispersion
  • Investing in sectors can provide a better means of capturing thematic trends than individual stocks
  • ETFs are attractive tools for implementing economic and broader market views
