List of Telecom ETFs

Updated May 24, 2019
With the rapidly expanding mobile world, telcommunications, or telecom in short, has been one of the sectors which has grown leaps and bounds. Amid hundreds of telecom-related companies that cater to the needs of various functions associated with the telecom business, the heightened competition makes it difficult for an average investor to select the right telecom stock, or a portfolio of multiple telecom stocks.
Telecom ETFs come to the rescue of such investors by providing a single tradable equity-like instrument which offers the benefit of diversification and low cost of investment and trading. Telecom exchange-traded funds or telecom ETF are those securities that invest in stocks of companies operating in the telecommunications industry. Such businesses include all facets of the telecom sector. For instance, one can find mobile phone operators and carriers, fixed-line or landline operators, instrument makers like those who manufacture mobile phone handsets or landline apparatus, companies offerings networking services like cable-laying activities, mobile tower operators and even hardware providers who fulfill the necessary functions to keep the telecom services up and running.
However, investors desirous of betting their hard earned money on the telecom sector should remain aware of the burgeoning industry and hundreds of players operating with cut-throat competition in the global arena. At times, revenues and earnings may be thin, and returns may not be as expected despite increasing consumer base and increased usage of services and content.
Investors should also check the scope of business operations of the companies in which the telecom ETF is investing the money. For instance, there can be telecom ETFs that invests in multinational telecom companies operating at a global level, while others may focus on country-specific or region-specific telecom companies.
