About the Fund

ITEQ® is the first ETF created to provide investors with diversified exposure to the dynamic Israeli technology sector. Although only a handful of Israeli technology companies are household names, collectively the Israeli technology sector is a major innovator, developer and supplier within the global technology ecosystem. These companies are at the forefront of most technologically disruptive industries, including cyber security, big data hardware and analytics, autonomous driver assistance and safety, clean energy, biotechnology and medical devices. ITEQ allows investors to tap into the Israeli technology investment opportunity, which includes Israeli companies listed worldwide and active in a broad range of well-established, emerging and disruptive technology sectors.

ITEQ® – the BlueStar Israel Technology ETF seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the BlueStar Israel Global Technology Index™ (BIGITech®), an index of Israeli technology companies listed on the Tel Aviv, Nasdaq, NYSE, Hong Kong, London, Australian and Singapore exchanges.

The index considers all Israeli companies regardless of listing venue and allows for the inclusion of companies operating in a range of industries from information technology to biotechnology to clean and sustainable agriculture and energy technology. BIGITech® was developed and is maintained by BlueStar Indexes®, and is now administered and maintained by MV Index Solutions GmbH (“MVIS”).8 The index is calculated by Standard and Poor’s.
