Best-Performing Technology ETFs - NerdWallet
Best-performing tech ETFsWhat is a tech ETF?A technology ETF is an exchange-traded fund that invests in companies in the technology sector. Tech ETFs include companies that create and distribute hardware, such as computers, smartphones, semiconductors and other electronics, and software, such as artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and cloud technology. Tech stocks are often high risk, high reward: While some go on to become the next Amazon or Apple, some crash and burn. Tech ETFs smooth out some risks by managing a collection of tech stocks. Why invest in tech ETFs?Tech ETFs could be an attractive option for investors looking for high growth potential. They may increase your odds of earning higher returns, as you might if you invested in individual tech stocks, but tech ETFs may carry less risk because of diversification. While it's impossible to know if investing in tech will guarantee you massive gains long-term, diversifying the companies in your portfolio through an ETF can help you safeguard against risk.
