Anthony Ginsberg, creator of the HAN-GINS Cloud Technology UCITS, said: “The significant gain in this fund is being powered by the growing importance of the cloud space for all technology companies. Over 60% of all US technology spending now occurs in the Cloud area[1]. It is the key battleground being fought over by most IT firms.”

He commented further: “Due to the explosion in interconnected devices that rely on the cloud, billion-dollar businesses have emerged and been able to flourish. These success stories would not exist without the critical cloud infrastructure needed to support them.”

Hector McNeil, Co-Founder of HANetf, commented: “The Cloud represents a major investment theme that has been encapsulated in the HAN-GINS Cloud Technology ETF. The fund has been designed to track what is becoming one of the major industrial growth stories of the early 21st century. It sits alongside a superb range of HANetf thematic ETFs. HANetf is very focused on being the ‘value added’ ETF provider focusing on next generation products”
