Are you interested in biotech or do you believe a biotech ETF would be a good fit for your portfolio? Investing in ETFs is an easy way to increase the diversification of your portfolio. On our platform, you can find a wide selection of biotech ETFs.
Not every biotech ETF is the same. ETFs differ from each other in several ways, such as fund size, price, risk and underlying value. For example, they may track different companies or indices. Also, some may pay dividends and others may not.
These are the four most traded biotech ETFs by our clients in 2021.

Biotech is short for biotechnology and is the sector that deals with turning biology knowledge into technological applications.
Companies that operate in the biotech sector develop new or more efficient methods of making products using biological processes. Biotech solutions are used in medicine, agriculture and various other industries.
Like pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies sometimes produce drugs. However, there is a difference between the two industries: drugs from biotech companies come from living organisms, and those from pharmaceutical companies have a chemical base.
Investing in biotech means investing in innovation, science and digital applications combined. Biotech companies produce many different products. You’ll find everything from COVID-19 treatments and flu vaccines to biodegradable plastic and living algae that purify water in this sector. A common denominator of all these different biotech companies is that they constantly innovate. This industry wants to find solutions for the future.
The share price of biotech companies can sometimes fluctuate considerably. This is a result of how biotech companies work. Anything can happen during the development phase. If a product turns out to be less effective or is rejected, the price can drop quickly. But once a product proves to be effective or is approved by regulators, the stock price can skyrocket. These price fluctuations can be easily hedged with ETFs. With a biotech ETF, you can invest in multiple biotech companies at the same time. This way, you can spread the risk and any price fluctuations of one company have less effect on your overall portfolio.
Biotech companies are complex and challenging due to the multitude of factors an investor must consider. ETFs that are more specific, such as biotech ETFs, compared to those that are broader, such as world ETFs, the performance will depend more on the specific sector or industry the ETF tracks.
