NEW YORK, September 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – XOUT Capital®, in collaboration with EQM Index LLC, reveals the answer to the speed of technological change in a new white paper titled “The Cost of Underestimating Technological Disruption”.
“Investors underestimate the rapid pace of technological disruption and its impact on businesses across industries. While virtually all investment strategies today focus on identifying successful companies, not owning those left behind by technological change offers investors a compelling opportunity to generate alpha.. “- XOUT Capital®. “XOUT seeks to capitalize on technological disruption by eliminating companies from its investment universe that are unable to adapt and thrive in a changing technological and economic landscape.“
The paper explores the speed that disruptive technology and innovation has had on all businesses and seeks to educate readers on how exclusion works by avoiding disruptors. The white paper examines some of the industries that have been permanently affected by accelerating technological change and COVID-19, including communications, e-commerce and transportation. The document presents facts and figures in easy-to-understand terms.
Given the rapidly changing technological arena, it can be difficult to understand – let alone fully predict – how technological disruption will affect businesses across industries. However, XOUT Capital believes that its index offers a better approach to managing the impact of technological disruptions across industries – by simply not owning the disruptors in a market index. This approach takes the guesswork out of identifying winners and losers with the potential to generate alpha. XOUT’s conclusion remains that time and time again, technological disruption and innovation have created winners and losers. XOUT offers an alternative to traditional active and passive investing approaches by focusing on the companies that should NOT be owned – and simply “X” “OUT” – in the midst of an ever-changing investment landscape. .

The performance data quoted represents past performance and does not guarantee future results. Actual performance may be lower or higher than the performance data quoted.
The XOUT US Large Cap Index uses a proprietary quantitative methodology developed by XOUT Capital, LLC, designed to identify companies that are at risk of disruption and could therefore underperform their relevant industry. The companies identified are then excluded from the index selection. There is no guarantee that the index will succeed in excluding companies that risk being disrupted or potentially underperforming their relevant sector. The exclusion or inclusion of a security in the index does not constitute a recommendation or a solicitation to buy, hold or sell a security.
Past performance is no guarantee of future returns. You cannot invest directly in an index.
