Understanding the Impact of the Inflation Reduction Act on ETFs

In the latest episode of ETF Spotlight, Jon Maier, Chief Investment Officer at Global X, discusses ETFs that could benefit from the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, recently signed into law by President Biden.

The Act allocates $370 billion to combat climate change, marking it the largest climate spending package in US history. It includes tax credits for wind, solar, hydrogen, nuclear energy, and battery storage.

The Global X Lithium & Battery Tech ETF LIT is set to gain from the increasing demand for silvery-white metal from electric vehicle (EV), renewable energy storage, and mobile device industries. Well-known holdings include Albemarle ALB and Tesla TSLA.

As governments strive towards achieving carbon neutrality and reducing dependence on Russian fossil fuels, nuclear power has regained prominence. The Global X Uranium ETF URA, which invests in uranium mining & nuclear components companies, stands to benefit.

Other ETFs that are likely to see a boost are the Global X Renewable Energy Producers ETF RNRG, which invests in companies harnessing renewable energy sources. The Global X Solar ETF RAYS focuses on solar energy companies, while the Global X CleanTech ETF CTEC invests in companies aiming to reduce environmental impacts.
