This iShares fund gives investors exposure to the networking sector of the U.S. technology market. A potentially attractive investment for many investors thanks to the rapidly developing cloud computing industry. As this technology continues to improve, these networking companies will act as a vital cornerstone for connecting users and supporting all of the new software. This ETF provides exposure to some of the biggest household names in the U.S., including Cisco and Research in Motion, although it maintains high weightings in a number of other, smaller, companies as well. As a result, the fund has heavy exposure to mid cap securities and close to 20% in small/micro caps as well. Due to this allocation profile, IGN will likely carry more risks, as smaller companies are much more susceptible to volatility, but it will also carry great potential for reward through potentially higher levels of growth. So while this fund could make for a good bet on the networking industry, most investors would probably be better served by looking at a broader technology fund that allocates assets across multiple sectors of the technology market instead of just the relatively obscure networking space.
