BBCVirtus LifeSci Biotech Clinical Trials ETF
BBC Fund Description
BBC tracks an equally weighted index of US-listed biotech companies with lead drugs in various phases of clinical trials.
BBC Factset Analytics Insight
BBC charges a stiff fee for focused exposure to biotech companies with lead drugs still in various phases of clinical trials. Given the low historical success rates in clinical trials, the fund is a high-risk and high-reward bet on a small subset of biotech companies. As such, if you're looking for broad biotech exposure, you won't find it in BBC, which carries an elevated beta and ends up with a basket for primarily small- and micro-cap stocks. That micro-heavy basket means that larger traders might face some obstacles to efficient block execution. Retail traders should likewise handle with care, as volume is weak and spreads can be sizeable. BBC has attracted middling investor interest, but closure risk cannot be dismissed.
