ETFs in 2019: Three Trends to Watch

Investor interest in exchange-traded funds continues to grow—as evidenced by the roughly 2,300 people who joined last month's Inside ETFs conference. Here, we share three findings.

Liquidity of ETFs: Exploring the Different Levels

ETFs have different layers of liquidity that allow investors to trade ETFs in amounts that can far exceed an ETF’s Average Daily Volume without significantly affecting the ETF’s price.

    * Intelligent Beta emphasizes the use of alternative index construction rules to traditional market capitalization-based indexes. Intelligent Beta emphasizes capturing fundamental investment factors or market inefficiencies in a rules-based and transparent way.

    Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are bought and sold through exchange trading at market price (not 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.

    This fund is an actively managed ETF that does not seek to replicate the performance of a specified index. To determine whether to buy or sell a security, the portfolio managers consider, among other things, various fund requirements and standards, along with economic conditions, alternative investments, interest rates and various credit metrics. If the portfolio manager considerations are inaccurate or misapplied, the fund's performance may suffer.

    There is no assurance that the fund will be less volatile than the market over the long term or for any specified period. The fund’s strategy of constructing a portfolio that realizes lower volatility than the market may not produce the intended result. A security’s volatility can change very quickly, and specific securities in the fund’s portfolio may become more volatile than expected. Additionally, low volatility investments may underperform the equity markets during periods of strong, rising or speculative equity markets.

    You should consider a fund's investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses carefully before you invest. The fund's prospectus or summary prospectus, which can be obtained at AmericanCenturyETFs.com, contains this and other information about the fund, and should be read carefully before investing.
