3D Printing Mutual Fund – Will This Ease Investment in 3D Printing Firms?
The 3D Printing and Technology Fund initially will be comprised of global, pure-play 3D printing companies that “develop, distribute or utilize 3D printing equipment and materials” for a variety of applications. The initial offering is limited to a single class under the ticker symbol TDPIX, and a minimum initial investment of $2,500 is required. There is no minimum on subsequent investments.
The fund’s adviser uses a “‘top down’ approach to create a universe of securities” for investment and a “bottom up” approach to create the fund’s investment portfolio. Likely inclusions are 3D Systems Corp. (NYSE: DDD) and Stratasys Ltd. (NASDAQ: SSYS), the two largest 3D printing companies by market cap.
The fund’s expense limitation is set at 1.25%,
