Cedrus Investments Ltd. Launches Two Global Nanotechnology Indices

Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands | Posted on October 27th, 2009

Cedrus maintains two indices in order to meet the needs of diverse investors. Cedrus' diversified index (CNID) includes 220 equally-weighted companies spanning all five nano-markets and is inclusive of both diversified companies that have nanotechnology as only one of many growth drivers, and pure-play companies that have nanotechnology as their primary driver of growth. Cedrus' pure index (CNIP) is a concentrated index, comprised of 67 equally-weighted pure-play companies spanning all five nano-markets and best-suited for small cap investors.

Kimberly Nearing, Executive Vice President said, "Companies developing nanotechnology have been among the best performing stocks over the past decade. While the past is no guarantee of the future, we believe their outperformance will continue, led by strong growth in innovation and demand for their products and services."

Cedrus' nanotechnology indices differ from others in that they are broader, including more than the typical 10-30 company names, and they are equally-weighted, rather than being market cap-weighted. Broader indices minimize company and market segment specific risk and volatility, and more readily capture emerging opportunities. They have a low correlation to the market and other more general technology indices. Equally-weighted indices, by definition, give equal importance to all members, making them superior comparative benchmarks to use within a specific industry, such as nanotechnology.

Leading companies within each index will be covered by high-quality, objective and actionable fundamental research. Both indices will be rebalanced quarterly to reflect structural changes in this dynamic industry and ETF versions of each will be launched shortly.

Paul Jackson, Chief Investment Officer commented, "These two indices take the pulse of the future in this dynamic and increasingly important industry, which already encompasses the great technology engine of the 20th and 21st centuries, semiconductors."
