The global cybersecurity market is expected to expand at a healthy compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% through 2027 as cybercrime affects more individuals, companies, and governments.1? Investors seeking to profit from this trend may consider owning a wide spectrum of cybersecurity stocks through exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Betting on individual stocks can be especially risky in young, fast-evolving industries. Cybersecurity ETFs offer diversification across the sector, thus avoiding the risks associated with trying to pick individual winners.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

The cybersecurity industry has underperformed the broader market in the past year.

The ETFs with the best 1-year trailing total return are BUG, CIBR, and IHAK.

The top holdings of these ETFs are Palo Alto Networks Inc., class A shares of CrowdStrike Holdings Inc., and DocuSign Inc., respectively.

There are 4 ETFs that trade in the U.S. focused on the cybersecurity sector: the Global X Cybersecurity ETF (BUG), the First Trust NASDAQ CEA Cybersecurity ETF (CIBR), the iShares Cybersecurity and Tech ETF (IHAK), and the ETFMG Prime Cyber Security ETF (HACK). The sector, as measured by the S&P Kensho Cyber Security Index, has underperformed the broader market with a total return of 14.0% over the past 12 months compared to the Russell 1000's total return of 19.4%, as of November 30, 2020.2?
