KBW Indexes

"The KBW indexes are an extremely valuable brand, and we are excited about the new energy that Nasdaq will bring to this partnership. Financial Services is the second largest sector of the overall market and while many products lump all financial services companies together, they fail to recognize that financial companies tend to trade on different factors."

- Dan Draper
Invesco PowerShares Managing Director of Global ETFs

The KBW Nasdaq indexes will offer investors the purest targeted exposure to each individual financial sector. The targeted sectors include banking, asset management, broker/dealer, insurance, equity REITs and mortgage finance:
