Whether we like it or not the robots and AI are well and truly here and to me still look like the best area for growth in the markets.


I was fascinated by a podcast the other week talking about an AI driven stock picking ETF outperforming the S&P 500. Stock ticker symbol AIEQ (NYSE)

Their investment thesis:

“We believe our innovative investment technology removes significant human bias and provides unique insights into financial markets.

We are confident our investment capabilities enhanced with artificial intelligence provide the potential opportunity to capture long-term capital appreciation.”

The ETF claims to find undervalued stocks and exploit timing to pick them up using multi-stage algorithms.

The performance looks great but it’s early and I’d be interested to see it’s performance in a correction or bear market. (S&P 500 is the purple line)


Other ETF’s with the AI & Robotic theme:


ROBO (ASX) https://www.etfsecurities.com.au/institutional/au/en-gb/products/product/etfs-robo-global-robotics-and-automation-etf-robo-asx

‘The ROBO Global Robotics and Automation Index is the first index to provide investors with a comprehensive, transparent and diversified benchmark that represents the global value chain of robotics, automation and artificial intellegence (RAAI) related companies.’

‘The Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence ETF (BOTZ) seeks to invest in companies that potentially stand to benefit from increased adoption and utilization of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI), including those involved with industrial robotics and automation, non-industrial robots, and autonomous vehicles.’
