Mutual funds versus ETFs: Which are better for your clients?
About this talk
The replay is eligible for one IMCA® CE credit
Over the past decade, assets invested in ETFs have grown by 746% compared to 88% for mutual funds(1), as many investors and advisors now consider ETFs to be a viable alternative. In this presentation, Steven Vannelli will use Morningstar’s recent decision to merge ETFs and mutual funds into the same peer groups as a starting point for analyzing the similarities—and differences—between these two options. He’ll also identify when an ETF may be a more appropriate choice for clients. Advisors will learn:
- The key questions to ask about the pricing, performance, expense ratios and tax impact of mutual funds and ETFs;
- Why mutual funds and ETFs with a similar focus, such as those targeting specific geographical regions, may deliver significantly different results;
- How to effectively educate clients on the potential benefits and risks of ETFs.
Steven will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
