The World’s first Big Data & Analytics ETF, the PureFunds ISE Big Data ETF (BIGD) was created to provide the market with a transparent vehicle to invest in the increasingly important Big Data Analytics industry.
Big Data consists of the value generated by mining and computationally analyzing data sets that have different degrees of volume, velocity, and variety to reveal key insights, patterns, and trends. The volume, variety and velocity of data created (known as "the 3 V's") can be overwhelming for most to comprehend. To put things into perspective, according to a 2013 report by SINTEF, "90 percent of all the data in the world has been generated over the last two years. 1 Since that time, the rapid increase in data created and stored has only accelerated. Despite the many challenges, mastering this complex trove of information and data points could lead to endless possibilities. In addition, data analysis has led to breakthroughs in the healthcare, agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, financial, defense sectors and more. These breakthroughs range from the mapping of the human genome to the mapping of our Universe. However, it is the future potential of Big Data and Analytics that could offer the greatest potential rewards.
The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the ISE Big Data Index.
