Amber Lion Technology Strategy Index
The Index reflects the performance of a virtual investment managed on the basis of a Strategy. This Strategy is determined by the Index Sponsor and the Index Sponsor is solely responsible for it. The Index Calculation Agent neither advises nor assists the Index Sponsor in connection with the preparation or implementation of the Strategy. The Strategy of the Index Sponsor is to identify market trends in the emerging technology domains and to find companies which leverage technology to enable new and/or traditional businesses. In the context of its strategy, the Index Sponsor selects small & mid Cap stocks from companies of the IT sector with a focus on Cybersecurity, Big Data, Data monitoring, Cloud computing and Internet of things. The companies need to fulfill high growth potential and are selected based on qualitative measures as well as fundamental criteria. The Index Strategy also considers initial public offerings (IPOs) of companies of the above mentioned IT sector. In addition, the Index Sponsor uses an options strategy, which allows him to select derivative instruments, such as short-puts, covered calls and long calls.
