Technology mutual funds are ideal for investors who seek long-term growth and impressive returns. This sector has a better earnings performance than other sectors, thanks to greater demand for technology and innovation. Improving industry fundamentals and emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotics and data science are key catalysts to the sector’s growth.

In addition, a majority of funds investing in securities from the technology sector take a growth-oriented approach that includes focusing on companies with strong fundamentals and a relatively better investment prospect. Moreover, technology has come to have a broader meaning than just hardware and software companies. Social media and Internet companies are now part of the technology landscape.
