PureFunds ISE CyberSecurity ETF (NYSE:HACK) was created to provide the market with a transparent vehicle to invest in the increasingly important Cyber Security industry. Anyone that has fallen victim to a cyber attack understands that the fear, consequences and helplessness associated are real. Hundreds of millions of people around the world have suffered from some form of cyber attack. Although a personal cyber attack can seem overwhelming and significant, those that happen on a corporate or government level can be disastrous. In addition to financial losses, cyber attacks have the ability to shut down or manipulate energy infrastructure, weapons defense systems, medical devices, financial markets, transportation networks/vehicles, or harvest highly personal or secret information and a constantly growing amount of other potential threats. Given the devastating effects cyber attacks can present, it is no coincidence that both corporations and governments around the globe have committed billions of dollars annually in hopes of preventing future attacks. This ongoing digital arms and defense race has vastly grown the size and importance of the Cyber Security industry. This constantly evolving battle will force efforts and capital to focus on this essential space. An increased spending and demand for cyber security solutions may benefit the always morphing Cyber Security Industry. The Fund seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the ISE Cyber Security Index.
