Solactive launches home automation index

RELATED TOPICS​

Solactive AG has launched the Solactive Home Automation Index, designed to track the price movements of stocks representative of the global home automation market. 

The Index has been licensed to be used as underlying for a BNP Paribas Open End Certificate listed in Frankfurt (EUR) and in Zurich (CHF and USD).

Home Automation is a broad definition that encompasses all connected objects in a smart home and now represents roughly 25 per cent of the growing Internet of Things space. What was considered as pure science fiction a few decades ago is on the verge of becoming a booming, leading market in the tech industry, as early adopters are being followed by a potentially huge mass market – latest example is the massive Apple homekit platform expected to be one of the main feature of the iOS 9. A recent Report from Business Insider Intelligence estimated the connected-home device sales to drive USD 60 billion revenues this year and to reach USD 490 billion by 2020.

Steffen Scheuble (pictured), CEO, Solactive, says: “We are enthusiastic at the idea of launching another innovative index in the tech space following the Solactive Wearable Tech and FinTech Indices earlier this year. The Solactive Home Automation Index is an interesting, geographically diversified tool replicating both major blue chips and pure players in a promising industry, which are all equal weighted.”

Kemal Bagci, Exchange Traded Solutions Germany, BNP Paribas, says: “Home Automation allows millions of households access to one’s home devices simply by pressing a button. Monitoring and communication with lights and heating systems as well as various domestic appliances will impact significantly households’ energy efficiency and the users’ overall quality of life.”

Florian Stasch, Exchange Traded Solutions Switzerland, BNP Paribas, adds: “The Open End Certificate on the Solactive Home Automation TR index offers investors both in Switzerland and in Germany an easy access to the major companies in this field.”
