Approach to Exchange Traded Funds

The ETF concise guide is aimed at financial advisers and looks at exchange traded funds mainly from a UK and European point of view. It also covers the origins of this type of fund in North America.

Francis firmly believes that ETFs will become more important in the next few years and that they are an invaluable tool for private investors and their advisers, opening up new asset classes such as emerging markets. Longer term investors and pension savers, in particular, will benefit from ETF investments. However, both advisers and their clients need to be aware of the different facets of ETF investing to draw the greatest benefit from them.

These aspects of ETFs that merit closer study include: ETF structures, ETF fees and costs, an appreciation of the different kinds of asset and index that ETFs track, ETFs and liquidity, ETF currencies, the tax status of ETFs, ETF information sources, ETF risks, the more advanced or complex types of ETFs and when to be wary of them.
