Expanded ETFs and Explore-Blog (2)


Today, we’re excited to announce that Wealthfront has added new investment options in technology, the metaverse, commodities, and more to our menu of available funds. It’s never been easier to build a portfolio you believe in. 

You can explore and research these new investments, along with the hundreds of others available at Wealthfront, right on our web site or using the Wealthfront app. Every investment has been carefully vetted by our investment research team. And if you find a strategy or investment you’re interested in, you can add it to your portfolio with just a few taps or clicks.

Get targeted exposure to new ideas & strategies

Maybe you’re interested in the metaverse but you’re not sure which individual stocks to buy. Or maybe you’re curious about using a covered call strategy (where you own a stock and sell call options on it at the same time) but you like the convenience of holding ETFs. Wealthfront now offers investments that address these needs and help you easily branch out into additional strategies and sectors. 

Here’s a closer look at some of the new investments you can now add to your Wealthfront portfolio.


Excited about the metaverse? The Roundhill Ball Metaverse ETF, also known as METV, seeks to track the performance of the Ball Metaverse Index. This index includes companies from around the world that work on virtual platforms, digital payments, computing, and hardware. Its holdings include Snap (SNAP), Nvidia (NVDA), and Unity Software (U). 


The Global X NASDAQ 100 Covered Call ETF, or QYLD, lets you add a covered call strategy to your Wealthfront portfolio for the first time. QYLD buys stocks from the NASDAQ-100 Index and sells call options on those stocks to generate income. 


The iShares Global Tech ETF, or IXN, gives you exposure to global tech stocks in a single ETF. IXN seeks to track the performance of the S&P Global 1200 Information Technology Sector Index, which includes companies like Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT), and Samsung (005930) in its holdings. 


The JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF, or JEPI, is an actively managed fund that invests in US stocks that seem undervalued. JEPI also gives you exposure to written (or sold) call options—a strategy that wasn’t previously available to Wealthfront clients.


For the first time, you can get exposure to carbon allowance futures in your Wealthfront portfolio through the KraneShares Global Carbon Strategy ETF, or KRBN.


Companies sometimes purchase their own stock in what’s known as a “buyback.” The Invesco Buyback Achievers ETF, or PKW, helps you get exposure to US companies that have bought back at least 5% of their outstanding shares over the last year. 

Here’s the full list of recently added investments

Keep in mind that these aren’t recommendations to invest, and you should evaluate any new investments and consider whether they’re right for your goals and situation. You should take into account each investment’s cost, its risk, and how it affects the overall diversification of your portfolio.
