The SEMI ETF from ETF Securities provides investors with exposure to the top 30 global companies included in the semiconductor industry, as classified by Factset’s Revere Business Industry Classification System (RBICS).
A Best ETFs No Rating rating is a fund rating our analysts apply to funds, LICs, mFunds, or ETFs that represents a ‘pending’ or ‘not yet researched’ status for the fund/ETF.
Please note, our rating methodology, research cycle, and process are currently being updated and will soon include full analyst ETF notes, reports, interviews, research, and ratings on select Australian ETFs and funds.
Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list or take our free ETF course while you wait for the updated features. If you’re a fund manager looking to get your fund independently rated by our team, please get in contact.
The SEMI ETF predominantly buys and holds large-cap shares of companies from the USA, Europe (Netherlands) and Taiwan that are involved in semiconductor manufacturing, design or development. These companies are world leaders in this growth industry.
Please note that because the semiconductor industry is, in part, dominated by two major companies (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co/TSMC, and United Microelectronics Co/UMC) the SEMI ETF weightings are capped at 10% of the portfolio during rebalancing. SEMI replaces every quarter.
Investors could use the SEMI ETF to get targeted exposure to the global stock market’s blue-chip companies involved in the semiconductor industry. If you believe semiconductor technology will play an increasingly important role in humanity’s development, interconnectedness and innovation, the SEMI ETF could be a way to get tactical or satellite exposure to the most important companies in the semiconductor value chain.
