About PRNT ETF
The 3D Printing ETF tracks a tiered, equal-weighted index composed of stocks that are directly involved in 3D printing and 3D printing-related businesses. PRNT is the first ETF on the market that focuses specifically on 3D printing. 3D printing is a niche market that garnered considerable attention during the SARS-CoV2 pandemic — think 3D-printed face shields and ventilator splitters. This ETF is comparable to other ETFs with narrow industry focus, especially since PRNT is one-of-a-kind.
PRNT is reconstituted and rebalanced quarterly. Eligible securities include equities based in the US, non-US developed markets, and Taiwan. The underlying index focuses on five different business lines related to 3D printing:
i) 3D printing hardware,
ii) CAD and 3D printing software,
iii) 3D printing centers,
iv) scanners and measurement, and
v) 3D printing materials
Each business line receives 50%, 30%, 13%, 5%, and 2%, weight in the index respectively. Within each business line, selected securities are given an equal weight.
