List of Software ETFs

Updated Dec 5, 2019
Despite the high volatility in the stock prices of software comapnies, they continue to remain the most attractive investment stream. In fact, one of the most tracked NASDAQ index is highly skewed in favor of technology companies. There are heavyweights like FAANG stocks that indicate the importance technology and software has in the investment world.
However, owing to the highly dynamic nature of the technology space, it is difficult for the average Joe investor to pick and choose the right software company. Software exchange-traded funds (ETF) comes to the rescue of such investors, as they allow spreading the invested capital across multiple companies yet keep the costs low for end investors as the latter only needs to pay for one single purchase in the form of expense ratio. Amid ever-changing needs of the software industry, investing through software ETFs has emerged as one of the most efficient methods to invest in software companies.
However, one must note that when you invest through a software ETF, what you get is the average return of the overall basket of the money invested in various software companies. While it may be exciting to see Facebook or Microsoft gaining 25 percent individually, those investing through software-specific ETFs may get lower returns as the above-average positive gains by a few stocks may be nullified by negative gains of the other stocks in the basket. The same phenomenon prevent investors during downturns. Investing in individual software stocks may be dangerous as their declines will lead to big losses, while investing through software ETFs will prevent complete or big erosion of capital as investors will get average returns.
