What Are Wind ETFs?
Investing directly in wind is obviously not possible, but there are multiple ETFs that offer exposure to the wind power industry. These include:
- First Trust Global Wind Energy Index Fund (FAN)
- PowerShares Global Wind Energy Portfolio (PWND)
Each of these funds includes both domestic and international stocks, and includes exposure to companies engaged in various components of the wind power business. For investors looking to bet on increased adoption of this energy source in the future, either ETF will accomplish that objective.
