With so many other issues grabbing headlines this year, the roll out of the fifth generation of wireless networks (5G) is almost being lost in the shuffle. However, it’s continuing at a brisk pace, bringing with it some compelling investment implications that go beyond traditional telecom carriers and handset makers. As such, 5G ETFs have increasingly enjoyed their place in the limelight more recently.
The technological movement also carries with it other implications. For example, it’s relevant to rising geopolitical tensions as the next generation of wireless networking is seen as a technological arms race between the U.S. and China, one that pits the controversial Huawei of China against policymakers in North America. In fact, that Chinese telecom company was recently locked out of Canada’s 5G efforts.
All of that is to say there’s a lot happening in the 5G space right now, which can make stock picking in this universe difficult. With that in mind, investors may want to consider some of the following 5G exchange-traded funds for exposure to what remains an important and compelling theme:
Best 5G ETFs to Buy: Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF (SRVR)
Expense Ratio: 0.60%, or $60 annually per $10,000 invested
In recent months, investors are becoming more familiar with what qualifies as an “essential” business and what does not. In the 5G space, the companies residing in the Pacer Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate ETF are essential and there’s no argument to be made. Put simply, 5G, or any other communications system, couldn’t exist and operate without the support of SRVR member firms.
What makes this one of the most unique 5G ETFs to buy is its focus. The SRVR ETF follows the Benchmark Data & Infrastructure Real Estate Sector, which is primarily comprised of data and infrastructure real estate investment trusts (REITs) and companies. REITs are an important area of focus for SRVR not only because these names are performing well, but also because many traditional REIT funds are not adequately allocated to these companies.
While the SRVR ETF offers ample credibility as a 5G ETF, it features some other perks as well. The “data” in the fund name refers to data centers. For those needing more confirmation that the data center investment theme is on fire, check out Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA).
Investors are catching on to SRVR’s ability to leverage both 5G and data centers. The fund has almost $661 million in assets under management, of which $407.55 million arrived just this year.
