XLK Fund Description

XLK tracks an index of S&P 500 technology stocks.

XLK Factset Analytics Insight

XLK offers fairly broad exposure to the US technology segment, but its S&P 500-only portfolio tilts away from our segment benchmark. XLK includes all of the big names associated with technology but also a few that seem like misfits, such as financial payment processers or telecom firms. Its limited selection universe excludes small-caps and most midcaps. Avoiding smaller, less-stable firms results in lower volatility and a tilt toward value compared to our broad tech-industry benchmark index, and can cause other minor performance differences. XLK is among the cheapest and largest funds in its segment and by far the most liquid—active traders need look no further. For many investors, XLK is the go-to choice in the segment.

XLK MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 6.33 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
