HBGD

Horizons Big Data & Hardware Index ETF

Invest in the Building Blocks of Big Data

The need to gather and analyze large amounts of data has become one of the single most important drivers of technological innovation. HBGD intends to track a portfolio of global companies focusing directly on big data through blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation and development as well as companies providing hardware and hardware-related services used in the process of mining, an essential part in supporting blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies.

Key Features

Companies that HBGD invests in:
• Semiconductors: Companies focused on the hardware required for rapid data processing
• Relevant hardware and services supporting data-intensive technology: Includes memory and storage producers, and services important to large-scale data mining on a commercial level, such as data centre real estate investment trusts
• Development of blockchain technology: Blockchain technology is typically associated with cryptocurrencies, however, it has wider potential applications in data management and encryption. HBGD will invest in companies directly developing blockchain technology if they meet minimum market-cap thresholds

Investment Objective

HBGD seeks to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the Solactive Big Data & Hardware Index, net of expenses. The Solactive Big Data and Hardware Index tracks a portfolio of global companies focusing directly on data development, storage, and management-related services and solutions as well as hardware and hardware-related services used in data-intensive applications such as blockchain.
