Defiance ETFs Launch 5G Technology Fund ‘FIVG’


Whether society is ready for it or not, disruptive technology like robotics, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning is the next wave of innovation that could pave the way for the latest growth-momentum plays for investors. In the not-so-distant future, 5G technology could be a major disruptor and one such opportunity to take advantage of this is the 5G ETF (FIVG) from Defiance ETFs, which launched today on the New York Stock Exchange, with an expense ratio of 0.30%.

Investors who missed out on the serendipitous run of FAANG (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google) stocks can look to capitalize on disruptive tech options in 2019 like 5G technology. 5G technology will use a higher frequency band versus the current 4G technology standard, resulting in faster transmission of data.

Being able to transmit copious amounts of data at a faster rate is certainly of benefit for wireless companies and their users, but 5G could be a major disruptor in various industries.

The Defiance Next Gen Connectivity ETF is the first ETF to emphasize securities whose products and services are predominantly tied to the development of 5G networking and communication technologies. FIVG does this by tracking The BlueStar 5G Communications Index, and FIVG attempts to invest all, or substantially all, of its assets in the component securities that make up the Index.
