Building portfolios with ETFs

We released our first quarterly ETF report during the month. ETFs are the basis of a range of InvestSMART’s Separately Managed Account portfolios and the purpose of this report is to provide our clients with an easy to digest wrap of market activity as well as a greater level of insight into how and why we’ve built our SMA portfolios the way we have.

ETFs are a low-cost, hassle-free way for investors to achieve their investment objectives. Whether your aim is to diversify your portfolio or to obtain exposure to a particular asset class or investment theme, the ability to buy ETFs directly on market, their low cost and transparency has seen the popularity of these securities amongst investors grow rapidly.
