How do I invest in ETFs that focus on Wide Moat stocks?

Some companies have managed to establish a strategic advantage over their competitors. Metaphorically, this is referred to as a moat, reflecting the strongly fortified (market) position of these companies. Such competitive advantages may be due to the distinctive character of a brand or to a research and development advantage based on patents. A moat can also result from territorial distribution or production rights that a company can claim. Another possibility is a strong position through the widespread use of the company's products among customers, making it difficult for the latter to switch to other providers. Furthermore, some companies are able to produce their goods much cheaper than their competitors.

In order to evaluate such competitive advantages, analysts need to thoroughly examine the business, the competitive situation and the strategic approach of companies. The results may then be used to create an index that can be tracked with ETFs.

In this investment guide, you will find all ETFs that focus on companies with a wide moat.
