UPDATE -- Global X Celebrates Cloud Computing ETF’s Win as “Newcomer ETF of the Year” as Fund Crosses $1bn in Assets

NEW YORK, Aug. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global X ETFs, the New York-based provider of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), is pleased to celebrate the selection of the firm’s Global X Cloud Computing ETF (CLOU) as “Newcomer ETF of the Year” at the Mutual Fund Industry and ETF Awards 2020. The news coincides with the Fund’s growth to over $1 billion in assets under management (AUM), in 14 months since the Fund’s launch in April 2019.1 According to ETF.com, CLOU is one of just five ETFs launched in 2019 to currently surpass the $1 billion milestone.2

CLOU seeks to provide targeted exposure to the cloud computing theme, favoring companies that derive more than 50% of their revenue from areas like infrastructure-as-a-service, software-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, data center REITs, and cloud and edge computing infrastructure and components. Given CLOU’s targeted approach, its performance is expected to be more directly tied to the continued growth and adoption of cloud computing technology than more broadly defined approaches.

Since CLOU’s inception on April 12, 2019, through July 31, 2020, the Fund gained more than 50%.

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Market price returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at the close of the exchange and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. The investable universe of companies in which CLOU may invest may be limited. The Fund invests in securities of companies engaged in Information Technology, which can be affected by rapid product obsolescence and intense industry competition. International investments may involve risk of capital loss from unfavorable fluctuation in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from social, economic or political instability in other nations. CLOU is non-diversified.

Shares of ETFs are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns. Global X NAVs are calculated using prices as of 4:00 PM Eastern Time. The closing price is the Mid-Point between the Bid and Ask price as of the close of exchange. Closing price returns do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Indices are unmanaged and do not include the effect of fees, expenses or sales charges. One cannot invest directly in an index.

Since the Fund’s shares did not trade in the secondary market until several days after the Fund’s inception, for the period from inception to the first day of secondary market trading in Shares, the NAV of the Fund is used to calculate market returns.

Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s summary or full prospectuses, which may be obtained by calling 1.888.493.8631, or by visiting globalxetfs.com.
