Electric vehicle stocks have hit a bit of a bump in the road recently. But that shouldn’t stop you from investing in them and participating in the long-term growth of the industry.

That’s according to Rahul Sen Sharma, President & Co-CEO of Indxx. Sharma’s firm is the index provider for the newly launched Mast Global Battery Recycling & Production ETF (EV)

In this episode of Talk ETFs, etf.com Senior Analyst Sumit Roy sits down with Sharma to learn more about the EV exchange-traded fund, the index behind the fund and what other new and interesting indices that Sharma is working on.

Sharma says that EV is a better way to invest in the electric vehicle growth story due to its focus on batteries.

“When you’re looking at just the batteries, you’re looking at the core component of every electric vehicle. So, it’s not really taking a position in an individual manufacturer and being subject to the vagaries of that manufacturer’s supply chain constraints or that manufacturer’s marketing or the quality of their electric vehicle. You’re actually getting exposure to the core part of every vehicle through this index,” Sharma said.
