Global X is joining the marijuana ETF listing frenzy, becoming the fifth American provider to list a weed tracker since June. The Global X Cannabis ETF (POTX) will invest in companies that make 50% of their money from an extremely loosely defined cannabis industry.
This definition includes companies at every point of the Cannabis “value chain”; includes companies providing cannabis “related” products and services; and includes companies the index provider “expects” will one day make 50% of their money in these fields.
Only Australian, Canadian and American companies subject to de minimis size and liquidity requirements are eligible. The fund charges 0.50% and joins a rapidly crowding market.
