In defence of ETFs

Clime’s John Abernethy pointed out the pros of LICs and the cons of ETFs. Here’s the alternative view.

Summary: ETFs offer investors a number of advantages, such as lower fees than many actively managed funds, diversification and control over investment decisions. They also offer transparency on price, as they trade at or very close to their net asset value.

Key take-out: A number of dividend-focused ETFs have been launched, designed to meet the income needs of self-funded retirees.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Shares.
