This ETF Hacks Into Cyber-Security Spending

The battle against hackers just got real.

After high-profile cyber-attacks and breaches that stretch from Sony Pictures Entertainment to JPMorgan Chase & Co. to Jennifer Lawrence, everyone is thinking about cyber-security. Even before the debacle with Sony, investing in cyber-security was projected to jump 40 percent to $42 billion by 2017, according to Bloomberg Intelligence. And yes, there’s now an exchange-traded fund to play it.

The Purefunds ISE Cyber Security ETF (HACK), out for less than a month, is already one of the most successful launches of 2014. It has returned 5.3 percent in its first three weeks, compared to 1.3 percent for the S&P 500 Index. HACK’s $65 million in assets puts it in the top 15 percent of the 196 new launches. That’s especially noteworthy because the ETF comes from a tiny, relatively unknown issuer without a ton of marketing power.
