Indxx Disruptive Technologies Index licensed to ALPS for new ETF


Indxx has launched the Indxx Disruptive Technologies Index, which has been licensed to ETF provider ALPS Advisors as the underlying benchmark for the ALPS Disruptive Technologies ETF (CBOE BZX: DTEC).

The Index is based around companies that enter traditional markets with new digital forms of production and distribution, are likely to disrupt an existing market and value network, displace established market leading firms, products and alliances and increasingly gain market share. 

Companies that generate more than 50 per cent of their revenue from these sub-themes are eligible for inclusion in the Index, with Indxx selecting the 10 largest by market cap from each sub-theme to form the final index.

“With this launch, Indxx is excited to continue to drive innovation in the thematic indexing space,” says Rahul Sen Sharma, Partner at Indxx. “Over the last few years, we have established ourselves as a market leader when it comes to thematic indices by combining top-quality research capabilities with cutting edge thought leadership. We are delighted to add to our growing list of indices in this space through our new relationship with ALPS.”

“ALPS is proud to be launching one of the first ETFs that offers investors exposure to so many investment themes within a single product,” says Mike Akins, Senior Vice President, Director of ETFs at ALPS Advisors. “We also look forward to our new index provider relationship with Indxx. As an innovative firm and leaders in the thematic space, we believe the index effectively targets the immense potential offered by disruptive technologies over the coming years and decades.”
