ETFs tend to charge lower expenses than many other diversified investment options. Lower costs mean that more of your money is working over the long term.
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs): Simplicity, Versatility and Low Cost
If you are looking for a lower cost, transparent, easy to understand, diversified investment product that offers you the flexibility to trade when you want, then Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) may be for you.
The increasing popularity of ETFs results, in part, from their simplicity. An ETF tracks as closely as possible the performance of its benchmark by purchasing all or a representative sample of the securities that make up the index. When investors purchase a unit of an ETF, they participate in the performance of the index. ETFs are listed on stock exchanges and are treated like a publicly-traded security – that is, you can buy or sell them throughout the trading day.
ETFs offer several advantages:
How they work:
- When investors purchase units of an ETF, they participate in the performance of the index.
- ETFs are listed on stock exchanges and treated like publicly-traded security – so you can buy or sell them throughout the trading day.
