XPND Factset Analytics Insight

Aside from holding conventional technology stocks, the fund may also include tech-dependent companies that are classified as communication services or consumer discretionary (particularly internet & direct marketing retail) under GICS.

The resulting portfolio is generally market-cap-weighted with weights typically ranging from 0.25% to 4.50%. Since XPND is actively managed, the fund adviser has the discretion to adjust portfolio weights and exclude certain securities. The portfolio is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly.
