Here’s an interesting article that talks about ETF’s that focus on the aging of the US population. I think that’s an interesting way to play on the growth of companies / services that allow US senior citizens to “age in place”. Some of the ETFs that are mentioned (and the investments / costs that each are structured around) seem like not the best fit to me, but I think it is a space that investors may want to keep an eye on.
Not sure why World Wrestling Federation (WWE) would be an appropriate investment for an “aging in place” ETF, but what do I know. One thing I know, is that I’m not doing any wrestling now that I’m 60+ nor am I interested in watching wrestling!! Is anyone else out there spending considerable amount of time watching WWF?
Some of the other investments seems to make sense such as Biotech, pharma and wealth management services.
“In the year 2000, the median age — the midpoint of the spread of viewers watching pro wrestling — was 28. The median age in 2006 was 33, and in 2016, the median age jumped all the way up to 54. That increase of 24 years in median age is the biggest jump among all sports by quite some margin.”
