Top Nasdaq 100 ETFs

The Nasdaq 100 index

The Nasdaq 100 index tracks the 100 largest stocks listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange. The selected companies are mainly from sectors such as hardware and software, telecommunications, retail and biotechnology – including all the major US technology companies. In contrast, companies from the energy, finance and real estate sectors are not included in the Nasdaq 100 at all.

In the USA, the popular QQQ ETF, which tracks the Nasdaq 100, has been available since 1999. It is managed by Invesco. The European counterpart of this ETF uses the ticker symbol eQQQ. In contrast to the US market, however, there are several ETF providers in Europe that track the Nasdaq 100 – so it is worth comparing.

ETF investors can benefit from price gains and dividends of the Nasdaq 100 constituents. Currently, the Nasdaq 100 index is tracked by 4 ETFs.
