In 1993, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) were introduced to the market. They have since surpassed mutual funds as the most popular investing option. This is due to the fact that, like conventional equities, they can be traded intraday. Only at the end of each trading day can mutual funds be traded. ETFs are a type of mutual fund that has leverage restrictions, daily values, and liquidity requirements. ETFs’ net assets have risen by an incredible 450 percent between 2010 and 2020. Mutual fund assets, on the other hand, have only quadrupled in the same time period. When compared to alternatives, ETFs offer benefits such as lower expense ratios, intraday trading availability, and tax exposure. As market analysts predict a recession, ETFs are one of the best investment vehicles for weathering the storm. In the coming days, investors should concentrate on value-oriented stocks.
