Investment Strategy:

KTEC seeks to track the performance of the Hang Seng TECH Index, which captures the 30 largest companies in Hong Kong's rapidly growing technology sector. The Index provides exposure to innovative companies with strong research & development investment, high revenue growth, and themes such as cloud, E-Commerce, fintech and internet. The Index is freefloat market capitalization weighted with an 8% cap on individual constituent weighting.

Hong Kong Technology Sector Highlights:

  • China led the world in retail web sales with $1.8 trillion total sales in 20201 (compared to $861 billion2 in the United States).
  • China is becoming a world leader in advanced Information Technology hardware production, focusing on 5G equipment and semiconductors.
  • Since the launch of the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Connect programs in 2014 and 2016, Mainland investors now represent 8.5% of Hong Kong's free-float market capitalization. This number is projected to increase significantly in the coming years3.

KTEC Provides:

  • Focused exposure to the largest technology companies listed in Hong Kong.
  • Access to companies benefitting from increasing domestic consumption by China's growing middle class, which is increasingly occurring online.
  • Access to Hong Kong-listed 5G and semiconductor companies that offer a potential source of uncorrelated, long-term growth.

30 Day Median Bid/Ask Spread

The ETF’s 30 Day Median Bid-Ask Spread is calculated by identifying the ETF’s national best bid and national best offer ("NBBO") as of the end of each 10 second interval during each trading day of the last 30 calendar days and dividing the difference between each such bid and offer by the midpoint of the NBBO. The median of those values is identified and that value is expressed as a percentage rounded to the nearest hundredth.
