Cybersecurity: The New ETF Frontier

Cybersecurity: The New ETF Frontier Updated: 7/9/2015


This week we launched the Nasdaq CEA Cybersecurity IndexSM to track the performance of companies engaged in the cybersecurity segment of the technology and industrials sectors. It includes companies primarily involved in the building, implementation, and management of security protocols applied to private and public networks, computers, and mobile devices in order to provide protection of the integrity of data and network operations.

Following the launch of the index, First Trust listed the First Trust Nasdaq CEA Cybersecurity ETF (Symbol: CIBR) on The Nasdaq Stock Market®. The Fund uses an indexing investment approach to attempt to replicate, before fees and expenses, the performance of the Nasdaq CEA Cybersecurity IndexSM (NQCYBR).
