A Great Way to Help You Meet Your Goals
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) combine features of mutual funds and stocks. With low overall costs, access to hundreds of companies and trading flexibility, ETFs can be a powerful addition to your portfolio.
ETFs Offer Familiar Benefits
Similar to mutual funds, ETFs are diversified mixes of stocks or bonds that are managed by experienced professionals. The difference is that ETFs typically offer a few extra perks, including lower fees, tax benefits and the ability to buy and sell throughout the day as long as the market is open.
