ETF Spotlight: Investing in the Future of AI and Big Data with the Global X AIQ ETF

As artificial intelligence (AI) and big data analytics continue to transform industries and reshape the business landscape, investors are looking for ways to capitalize on this technological revolution. One compelling option is the Global X Artificial Intelligence & Technology ETF (AIQ).

Launched in May 2018, the AIQ ETF provides exposure to companies at the forefront of AI development and adoption. The fund tracks the Indxx Artificial Intelligence & Big Data Index, which includes companies involved in AI software and services, industrial applications, data processing, analytics, and AI computer chips and hardware.

With 84 holdings as of April 2024, the $1.6 billion AIQ offers investors diversified access to AI innovators like Nvidia, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Amazon, as well as lesser-known specialized AI firms. By investing across the AI ecosystem, the fund captures value from companies enabling AI advances through hardware and data infrastructure as well as those leveraging AI for software, cloud services, autonomous vehicles, and other transformative applications.

The AI revolution is still in its early innings, with AI expected to add $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030 according to PwC. As AI capabilities rapidly advance and adoption spreads, demand for AI products and services could soar in the coming years. Companies leading AI innovation stand to reap immense rewards from this accelerating disruption across nearly every industry.

Of course, as a thematic technology fund, AIQ comes with a higher risk profile compared to broad market funds. It is also fairly concentrated, with the top 10 holdings currently making up around 32% of the portfolio. However, for investors bullish on AI's massive growth potential, AIQ represents a strategic way to invest in this transformative megatrend through a single ETF product.

With its focused yet diversified exposure across the AI ecosystem and a modest 0.68% expense ratio, the Global X AIQ ETF merits consideration for investors seeking to benefit from AI's rapidly expanding technological and economic impact in the years ahead.
