ETFs: It’s time to get on board!
Offering access to almost every corner of the market and every major asset class, ETFs are one of the fastest growing categories of investment products in the world.
The reason for this is clear. ETFs are simple to use, transparent and cost-effective and can provide portfolio diversification and flexible investment options for investors.
ETFs can be bought and sold like any share and typically aim to provide investors with exposure to an index or asset class. As ETFs are passively managed, they are usually lower cost to run. These cost savings can then be passed on to the investor. Generally, an ETF’s costs are significantly less than those funds which are ‘actively managed’.
Did you know that index funds have typically outperformed most actively managed share funds
over the long term?
Over the five years to the end of 2018, for example, 80% of actively managed Australian equity funds underperformed the S&P/ASX 200 Index. Over a three-year period, the figure was more than 85%.
