Sector ETF Overview

Sector ETFs dissect the market according to their economy activity. These products are popular with investors looking for targeted exposure in addition to their core equity exposure, as well as those looking to take advantage of long-term trends in the economy.

Furthermore, investors can benefit from the low correlations between each sector, which allows for easier risk management. From an active management perspective, they can also implement sector rotation strategies.
