Investors are looking to capture gains from developments in automation and artificial intelligence, according to Morningstar data.

iShares Automation & Robotics ETF (RBOT) came fourth on the top 10 most popular ETF list on Morningstar.co.uk in June as passive investors explored how to profit from disruption.

Aside from tech choices, exchange-traded funds that track US and UK large-cap indices continue to feature on the most popular ETF list. Topping the list last month was the Gold Rated Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VUSA), followed by Vanguard FTSE 100 ETF (VUKE) in third position. The Vanguard FTSE All-World Dividend Yield ETF (VHYL) and iShares FTSE 100 (ISF) came fifth and sixth on the list while Vanguard FTSE Developed Europe ex UK ETF (VERX) came ninth on the most popular list.
