ROBO Global's HTEC ETF Surpasses $100 Million in Assets Under Management
Launched in June 2019, HTEC tracks the ROBO Global® Healthcare Technology & Innovation Index, which provides investors with diversified exposure to the most transformative and growth-oriented areas of healthcare, including precision medicine, genomics, telehealth and robotics.
"After closely monitoring the healthcare space for five years as part of our flagship index, it was clear that technological advancements would be reshaping this sector for decades to come," said Travis Briggs, CEO of ROBO Global, U.S. "It was a natural extension for us to launch a healthcare technology index designed to capture this long-term growth opportunity."
HTEC has returned over 74%* since inception on June 25, 2019 and over 59% year-to-date (as of 12/15/20).
"HTEC's performance and asset accumulation are indicators of the growing investor appetite for healthcare innovation," said Nina Deka, Senior Research Analyst a ROBO Global. "COVID-19 illuminated the need for advanced healthcare technology, like new therapeutics and virtual care. Yet we are still in very early days of adoption, and there is much more innovation to be realized as companies seek to address rising healthcare costs, improve access to care, and ultimately save lives. This presents a tremendous potential opportunity from an investment perspective."
