Principal Investment Strategy
Under normal circumstances, the Trust will invest at least 80% of the value of its assets in stocks classified as being in the information technology sector by the Global Industry Classification Standard (“GICS”). The Trust is diversified across the information technology sector. The Sponsor selects stocks for the Trust within the sector that it believes have the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. The U.S.-listed common stocks held by the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies.
The Sponsor selects domestically-traded companies that it believes are core holdings of a diversified technology portfolio. To select the portfolio the Sponsor follows a very disciplined process which includes both quantitative and qualitative analysis. The Sponsor begins with the approximately 500 companies that are in the Russell 3000® Index and are classified as being in the information technology sector. The Sponsor then reduces the 500 companies to approximately 150 by performing quantitative screening, which may be primarily based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
The Sponsor then reduces the sub-universe of securities to the final portfolio by performing qualitative analysis, which may be primarily based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
INDEX DEFINITIONS: The Russell 3000® Index measures the performance of the largest 3000 U.S. companies representing approximately 98% of the investable U.S. equity market.
