HSBC Asset Management launches India Tech Ucits ETF

HSBC Asset Management has launched its India Tech Ucits ETF, offering access to an index of technology-oriented Indian companies beyond “purely IT companies”.

The index, provided by S&P Dow Jones Indices, includes companies that derive at least 80% of their revenue from digital technology, communication and software-related businesses, as defined by FactSet’s Revere Business Industry Classification System data.

According to HSBC AM: “This revenue-based approach is designed to offer investors access to a more diversified index than purely IT companies and one that captures technology-oriented companies from different sectors.”
