Technological advances in clean energy, intelligent infrastructure, cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles and space exploration are transforming industries and creating new ones. But many portfolios lack exposure to innovative companies.
Why Thematic ETFs?
Research shows early stage innovation stocks may offer greater capital appreciation potential than the broad market over long-term investment horizons.
The SPDR S&P Kensho New Economy ETFs are powered by a forward-looking and dynamic process from S&P Kensho that uses artificial intelligence to scan regulatory filings in order to identify and classify innovative firms — looking beyond revenue and balance sheet information.

Investing involves risk including the risk of loss of principal.
Equity securities may fluctuate in value in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.
Concentrated investments in a particular sector or industry tend to be more volatile than the overall market and increases risk that events negatively affecting such sectors or industries could reduce returns, potentially causing the value of the Fund’s shares to decrease.
Passively managed funds invest by sampling the index, holding a range of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the full Index in terms of key risk factors and other characteristics. This may cause the fund to experience tracking errors relative to performance of the Index.

When the fund focuses its investments in a particular industry or sector, financial, economic, business, and other developments affecting issuers in that industry, market, or economic sector will have a greater effect on the Fund than if it had not done so.
Technology companies, including cyber security companies, can be significantly affected by obsolescence of existing technology, limited product lines, and competition for financial resources, qualified personnel, new market entrants or impairment of patent and intellectual property rights that can adversely affect profit margins.
