QTEC Fund Description

QTEC tracks an equal-weighted index of the largest Nasdaq-listed US technology stocks.

QTEC Factset Analytics Insight

QTEC offers quirky exposure to the tech sector: it equally-weights large-cap tech stocks that are listed on Nasdaq. The fund is not a good fit for investors who want small-cap, or even just representative tech exposure. QTEC's main appeal is its equal-weighting, which drastically drops the huge market footprint of big tech names in the Nasdaq-100 Index. However, its Nasdaq focus causes it to miss some major tech giants. The net result is that QTEC tilts small and heavily overweights semiconductors at the expense of software & IT services. The index is rebalanced quarterly and reconstituted annually.
