FAANG stocks — Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB). FB, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL). AAPL, Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN). AMZN, Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:NFLX). (NFLX) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Inc.’s (GOOG, GOOGL) Google — along with Microsoft Corp. MSFT and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc. TSLA take about 25% of the S&P 500. Many are now of the view that these seven behemoths are responsible for the broader market’s hop and drop. These cash-rich companies have swelled in their market capitalization in recent years.

But the trend is probably shifting. Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) believes people are over invested in big-cap tech names. "We noticed there was a growing disconnect between where investors are positioned and where we are seeing the most attractive returns over the next decade or so," said Sung Cho, the portfolio manager of the Goldman Sachs Future Tech Leaders ETF, on Yahoo Finance Live.

"For the last 20 years, it has been focused in the U.S. and in mega cap tech companies. We believe we are at a key inflection point where innovation is expanding beyond the U.S., as well as beyond the market cap spectrum," according to Cho, as quoted on Yahoo Finance.

And why not? Disruptive technologies are booming, especially with more dependence on technology amid coronavirus-led social distancing. Our dependence on areas like AI, robotics, autonomous vehicles, computer perception, and virtual and augmented reality has been growing.

Quantum (NASDAQ:QMCO) computing is another technology holding a lot of potential but is still new in the market. It is expected to transform industries with new artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in few years (read: Market Outlook & Thematic ETF Ideas for Q4).

Against this backdrop, below we highlight a few future tech ETFs that focus on future era tech plays.

ETFs in Focus

This ETF is active and does not track a benchmark. Marvell (NASDAQ:MRVL) Technology (3.1%), MercadoLibre (NASDAQ:MELI) (3.0%) and HubSpot (NYSE:HUBS) (2.6%) were the top three stocks of the fund. The fund charges 75 bps in fees. The fund looks to keep investors on the right side of disruption by picking innovative, attractively-valued companies associated with durable secular growth themes.

BlackRock (NYSE:BLK) Future Tech ETF BTEK

The fund looks to maximize total return by investing in companies developing innovative and emerging technologies in the technology sector. The fund charges 88 bps in fees.
