URA Fund Description

URA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of uranium mining, exploration, and technology companies combined with nuclear component producers.

URA Factset Analytics Insight

URA is the only fund on the market that offers targeted exposure to global uranium and nuclear component companies. It holds a highly concentrated, top-heavy portfolio of primarily small- and micro-cap firms. URA steers clear of large mining conglomerates like Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton—these companies account for a large portion of the uranium market, but aren’t pure play. To add liquidity and diversification to the fund, the index provider includes nuclear component companies. URA's niche exposure comes with a high price tag, but investors with a strong conviction about the future of uranium may be willing to stomach its costs. Realized expenses are tough to predict, however, as the fund’s tracking has been inconsistent. Trading volume in URA is respectable, with reasonable spreads. Block liquidity is another story, as market impact is major consideration when creating or redeeming shares. Prior to May 1, 2018 the fund tracked the Solactive Global Uranium Index. The fund announced the underlying index will change to the Solactive Global Uranium & Nuclear Components Index during the third quarter of 2018
