Why Invest in Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs)?

Our mission is empowering clients to invest wisely in unexplored and intelligent solutions. From disruptive technology to income-generating strategies, we aspire to offer something beyond ordinary. Yet our products also offer the following benefits common to the ETF structure:

  • Diversify with Ease

    Like traditional mutual funds, ETFs contain a basket of assets, including potentially stocks, bonds and currencies, allowing investors to target specific themes or strategies, while lessening single-stock risk.

  • Transparency

    Most ETFs publish their holdings daily. In addition to knowing what you own, ETFs are generally more tax efficient and, on average, offered at a lower expense ratio than comparable mutual funds. For shareholders, this likely means lower and more predictable cost of ownership.

  • Accessibility

    ETFs are bought and sold on an exchange (similar to a stock), enabling investors access to the market and their investments throughout the trading day. With more than 2,000 ETFs listed in the U.S. alone, this provides wide-ranging choice and flexibility.
