Investing in HTEC: Healthcare Technology & Innovation Index by ROBO Global


Global health spending accounts for 10% of the world’s GDP. Over the next decade, with life expectancy and chronic disease on the rise, annual expenditure will likely exceed 10 trillion dollars. This price tag comes with an alarming degree of inefficiency, with several hundred billions of dollars per year considered waste. Throughout history, inefficiency has been the birthplace for disruption across every sector, and for healthcare, that time is now. Robo Global presents HTEC, an investment strategy comprised of the most disruptive companies in healthcare today. In a race to meet the vast unmet needs in healthcare, new scientific and technological breakthroughs are driving research and development at an unprecedented pace. Thousands of companies are working to address the world’s biggest health issues, like curing disease, reducing nurse and physician workload, and improving diagnostic accuracy. All this innovation is creating a multitude of compelling, yet complex and rapidly changing investment opportunities. To help investors navigate this environment, ROBO Global created the Healthcare Technology and Innovation Index, HTEC, tracked by ETFs on the New York and London stock exchanges. HTEC provides unique and diversified exposure to the most innovative companies in healthcare. To construct the HTEC portfolio, our team of analysts and industry experts apply a deep, research-driven methodology to identify the companies that are defining the future in the fields of surgical robotics, 3D printed implants, next-generation gene sequencing, and many more. The result is a global, diversified portfolio of small, mid and large-cap, tech-forward companies that investors don’t typically own. This is what makes us unique from traditional healthcare indices, which are more heavily weighted by large-cap pharmaceutical companies. HTEC’s diversification enables investors to capitalize on the faster growing and more nimble innovators. This backtest shows HTEC’s historic returns compared with the Global Healthcare Index and World Equity Index. Healthcare’s technology revolution is now.
