Why invest in ETFs?

ETFs can be a valuable addition to your portfolio. They can provide a set of advantages such as:

  • Money sign icon


    A single ETF can include a wide range of stocks or bonds, which can be used to help you efficiently diversify your portfolio.

  • Dollar bill icon

    Lower costs

    ETFs tend to have lower operating expenses than mutual funds which allows those savings to be passed onto investors in the form of lower fees, while also providing potential tax benefits.

  • Clock icon


    Similar to stocks, ETFs can be traded anytime during market hours.
