It is always interesting to see if new ETFs, in a very highly saturated marketplace, catch any attention or more importantly a sizable amount of assets. First Trust is trying to catch the cloud computing angle, with a new ETF:
- Pure Play Cloud Computing Companies: Companies that are direct service providers for “the cloud” (network hardware/software, storage, cloud computing services) or companies that deliver goods and services that utilize cloud computing technology.
- Non Pure Play Cloud Computing Companies: Companies that focus outside the cloud computing space but provide goods and services in support of the cloud computing space.
- Technology Conglomerate Cloud Computing Companies: Large broad-based companies that indirectly utilize or support the use of cloud computing technology.
