Fund aim

The L&G Cyber Security UCITS ETF (the "ETF") aims to track the performance of the ISE Cyber Security® UCITS Index (the "Index").

  • Long-term allocation

Long-term megatrend that we believe is radically transforming the way we live and work

  • High growth potential

Aims to capture the outsized growth potential of cyber security products and services

  • Leveraging industry expertise

An index tracking investment strategy that is supported by a team of cyber security experts

ISE Cyber Security® UCITS Index

The Index aims to track the performance of a basket of stocks of companies that are actively engaged in providing cyber security technology and services.

The Index is comprised of companies which are publically traded on various stock exchanges around the world that generate a material proportion of their revenues from the cyber security industry. The industry is deemed to be comprised of companies in the following two subsectors: (1) Infrastructure Providers that develop hardware and software for safeguarding internal and external access to files, websites and networks; and (2) Service Providers that provide consulting and secure cyber-based services.

A company is only eligible for inclusion in the Index if it is of a sufficient size (determined by reference to the total market value of its shares) and it is sufficiently “liquid” (a measure of how actively its shares are traded on a daily basis).

Within the Index, the weights allocated to the Infrastructure Provider and Service Provider subsectors are determined by reference to the relative size of each sector (i.e. the total market value of the shares of all companies within each subsector). Initially, the companies are equally weighted within each subsector. However, an adjustment to the weights is made if any company falls short of a liquidity test that is applied to each company individually.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is not a guide to the future.

    An investment in the ETF involves a significant degree of risk. Any decision to invest should be based on the information contained in the relevant prospectus. Prospective investors should obtain their own independent accounting, tax and legal advice and should consult their own professional advisers to ascertain the suitability of the ETF as an investment.

    The value of the shares in the ETF is directly affected by increases and decreases in the value of the Index. Accordingly the value of a share in the ETF may go up or down and a shareholder may lose some or the entire amount invested.

    The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will be affected by its ability to purchase and/or sell the Index constituents and any legal or regulatory restrictions or disruptions affecting them.

    The ETF's ability to closely track the Index will also be affected by transaction costs and taxes incurred when adjusting its investment portfolio generally and/or to mirror any periodic adjustments to the constituents of the Index. There can be no certainty that ETF shares can always be bought or sold on a stock exchange or that the market price at which the ETF shares may be traded on a stock exchange will reflect the performance of the Index.

    The ETF is subject to the risk that third party service providers (such as a bank entering into swaps with the ETF or the ETF's depositary) may go bankrupt or fail to pay money due to the ETF or return property belonging to the ETF.

    As the Index includes micro, small and medium-sized publicly traded companies, the ETF is subject to the risk that such companies may be more vulnerable to adverse business or economic events and greater and more unpredictable price changes than larger companies or the stock market as a whole.

    The ETF is subject to the risks associated with technology-focused companies and are particularly vulnerable to rapid developments in technology (which may leave their products out-of-date), government regulation and competition from domestic and foreign competitors who may have lower production costs. Such companies may also have difficulties establishing and maintaining patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets relating to their products which could negatively affect their value.
