KBW Nasdaq Financial Technology Index
The KBW Nasdaq Financial Technology Index is designed to track the performance of financial technology companies that are publicly traded in the U.S. Since financial technology companies are not easily categorized into a single industry group, Index eligibility is not limited to securities within a particular industry classification. Securities eligible for index inclusion leverage technology to deliver financial products and services. Their distribution is nearly exclusively electronic, with limited to no “bricks and mortar,” and their revenue mix is predominantly fee-based. The Index began on July 18, 2016, at a base value of 1000.
