Analyst Report

This ETF dedicates its assets to an index which represents non-U.S. utilities companies. An investment in the utilities sector offers several advantages to the average investor. Firstly, many utilities are a necessity in today's world, and as our population continues to grow in the future, the demand for these companies will only increase in theory. Second, utility companies are known for their high dividend yields, giving investors a steady stream of income despite what market conditions may be like. Finally, these companies may prove to be somewhat recession proof; no matter what the economic conditions are, people still need to use electricity and other utilities to go about their daily lives. IPU spreads its assets across numerous countries, including the UK, Germany, Japan, France and others. Many investors feel that the U.S. has hit its growth peak, and that better opportunities lie elsewhere in the world. This fund will be a perfect addition for those who feel that the utilities sector is much more attractive abroad than it is within our own borders.
