XT Fund Description

XT holds companies from developed and emerging market countries that create or use exponential technologies as defined by Morningstar.

XT Factset Analytics Insight

XT invests in nine different fields deemed to be "exponential technologies": big data and analytics, nanotechnology, medicine, networks, energy and environmental systems, robotics, 3-D printing, bioinformatics and financial services. The fund's Morningstar index selects and weights these companies with a somewhat-opaque method, and the resulting portfolio doesn't look anything like what we consider to be the global tech market. XT sees decent daily volume and manageable spreads, and larger investors will find strong block liquidity. XT's fee is fairly low for a fund in this segment, especially one employing a unique methodology.

XT MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

iShares Exponential Technologies ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of A based on a score of 5.90 out of 10.

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.
