Q: After recent developments in Ukraine-Russia war, Russia now treating NATO as a direct enemy, so we are are going to see significant escalation in cyber war activities, meaning more money is going to be spend on cyber security. To capitalize on this, I would like to invest in one of these three cybersecurity ETFs. I am leaning towards BUG because it has higher concentration of security names, two other ETFs have many cloud/infrastructure holdings (e.g. Cisco, Cloudflare, etc.) that have little to do with cybersecurity. Yet, BUG is the smallest out of 3 ETFs and it has very high average P/E ratio... Which ETF do you recommend and what's you reasoning for the choice? Thanks.

Q: Dear 5i team.

I'm considering adding to my IHAK position but wanted to clear up something with you first.
In the archives, you mentioned that a combination of CRWD/NET/PANW would be an alternative to owning the ETFs IHAK or HACK. Are you still of this view? Do you still prefer IHAK to HACK?
Are the valuations of these holdings back to a level that reflects current realities?

Many thanks for your help.
