By Rene Casis - April 10, 2019

Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, as an investment vehicle have been around less than 30 years. Is that a long time, or just the blink of an eye? It probably depends on your age. But one thing we can all agree on is that 2018 was a milestone year for this strategy.

I’m often asked to prognosticate what the coming months—and year—have in store for ETF investors. My answer is simple: New products. Specifically, I foresee a range of new, actively oriented products. I also expect to see continued global growth, albeit on a much more muted pace than in previous years.

In this quarter’s outlook video, I share details on anticipated ETFs performance and how advisors can address the implementation challenge.

      Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price, not Net Asset Value (NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund. Shares may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV in the secondary market. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.

      Investment return and principal value of security investments will fluctuate. The value at the time of redemption may be more or less than the original cost. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
