In a special edition of Zacks Friday Finish Line, Content Writer Ryan McQueeney and Editor Maddy Johnson are joined by Andrew Chanin, the CEO of PureFunds.
PureFunds is a New York City-based research firm that serves as the sponsor of 8 different thematic ETFs, including funds that focus on big data, cyber security, and health and medical technology.
Together, we discussed the Video Game Tech ETF (GAMR), the world’s first ETF that focuses on the video game industry. It was created in order to offer a way to invest in the increasingly popular and important video game tech sector.
Andrew gave insight on both traditional gaming powerhouses and new, emerging players in the industry, as well as the many technologies that go into our favorite games. We also talked about the hottest devices driving the sector, like virtual reality headsets and the rise of mobile gaming.
Stay tuned for parts two and three of the interview, where we discuss PureFunds’ Drone Economy Strategy ETF (IFLY) and Mobile-Electronic Payments ETF (IPAY).
