About This Episode

Invesco recently expanded its ETF lineup launching two new exchange-traded funds that capture timely technology themes – biotechnology and semiconductors. The new ETFs will track well-recognized Nasdaq Indexes with nearly 30 years of live track record; the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index and the PHLX Semiconductor Sector Index. In the last year, the advances of technology – in which semiconductors are critical – deeply impacted the way people engaged during the pandemic. The biotechnology space has paved society's way out of the pandemic. The past year has underscored the importance of these companies, which are often well-positioned to capitalize on transformative technology themes, as these companies continue to expand their critical roles in society.
