Behind HACK’s Investment Strategy

Investment strategy

The ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF (HACK) follows a replication strategy, which is basically an indexing strategy that involves investing in the securities (CSCO) (JNPR) of the index in approximately the same proportions as the index invests. Consequently, HACK does not aim to beat the index, and it doesn’t intend to take temporary defensive positions when markets (SYMC) (SPLK) are in a corrective mode or are overvalued.
