All Fund Management Is Active
 
05:42
(Transcript is below) In this short video, ICI Chief Economist Sean Collins explains why it’s important to remember that active management is everywhere, whether money is flowing into—or out of—actively managed funds or index funds. For more information, visit https://www.ici.org --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sean Collins: Hi. I’m Sean Collins, senior director for industry and financial research at ICI. I’m going to talk to you today about active management and, in particular, the notion that active management is everywhere. A major development going on in mutual funds and exchange-traded funds is that much of the money coming into mutual funds and ETFs has been directed toward index-based mutual funds and ETFs. But what you may not know about this shift from actively managed to index-based funds is that active management is everywhere. First, let’s ask a basic question: what is an index fund? An index fund is a fund that invests in all of the securities in a particular market index. For example, the S&P 500 Index is an index of the stocks of 500 large companies that are listed and sold on US stock markets. Let’s now look at the question of active management. Suppose you decide to put all of the cash you have available for investing into an S&P 500 index fund. Even though you’ve invested solely in an index fund, that’s an active decision, at least implicitly. It’s active in the sense that you’ve decided to invest in a fund that holds only large-cap stocks that are US listed companies. By investing solely in an S&P 500 index fund, you’ve decided not to hold any small-cap stocks; you’ve decided not to hold any foreign stocks; you’ve decided not to hold any bonds. You’ve made an active decision. So that’s one sense in which active management is everywhere. Let’s talk about another factor affecting this issue. There’s been a shift from active management inside funds, to active management outside of funds. This development also is part of the shift to index funds. What do I mean? I’ll give you an example. Let’s look at an actively managed mutual fund—we’ll call it Fund A. The fund has a portfolio manager who buys and sells securities for the fund—let’s say Stock X and Stock Y—and who decides how to allocate the fund’s assets between stocks X and Y. She might put 80 percent here and 20 percent here, or she might do something a little bit different. As portfolio manager of an actively managed fund, she has the ability to make choices and to change her decisions. She might also at some point decide that she wants to add another stock—Stock Z. And she might decide that she wants to add a bond—let’s call it Bond Q. To do this, she might sell some combination of Stock X or Stock Y. That’s active management inside of a mutual fund. Now suppose we have three index funds—they could be mutual funds or exchange-traded funds—also known as ETFs. Let’s call them Funds E, F, and G. Let’s say you decide to invest all of your cash in those index funds, in some proportion. Suppose you decide, like many people, to hire a financial professional to help you manage the assets in your portfolio of index funds. The financial professional, who doesn’t have anything to do with the management of those index funds, is in effect providing active management for you, by helping you build and manage your portfolio. This person, for example, might help you choose an initial asset allocation. If you had $100,000 that you wanted to invest, this financial professional might help you choose an allocation between index funds E, F, and G, based on your long-term goals and your personal circumstances, including your income, whether or not you’re married and have children, how close you are to retirement, etc. This financial professional might also help you reallocate assets. What does that mean? Well, for example, as you grow older, it’s generally considered a good idea to add fixed-income investments—bonds, generally—to your portfolio. So as you grew older, the financial professional might suggest adding a bond index fund—Fund H—to your portfolio. In addition, the professional may give you advice on how to adjust your portfolio in response to changing market conditions. Throughout this process, and over time, the professional is providing active management of a portfolio of index funds. If you do this without the help of a financial professional, this simply means that you yourself are actively managing your portfolio. So though you’ll see lots of debate in the media about active versus index investing, it’s wise to remember that active management is everywhere, whether money is flowing into, or out of, actively managed funds or index funds. I hope you found this brief overview of active management helpful. For more information and resources, please visit ICI’s website at www.ici.org.

Australian ETF Selection (Vanguard)
 
06:49
Today I’m talking about Australian ETF Selection with a focus on Vanguard ETFs. I’ve only recently started investing in ETFs – actually, I only started earlier this year – and I think that ultimately ETFs will be the main part of my portfolio. So what’s an ETF? An ETF is an Exchange Traded Fund, that is, it’s an investment fund that is traded on a securities exchange market like the Australian ASX. They’re typically a diversified portfolio of securities that track a particular asset or index (although, there are actively managed ETFs as well that try to outperform the given market or index). So for example, VTS – Vanguard U.S. Total Market Shares Index ETF seeks to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index, providing investors with exposure to a broadly diversified collection of securities that, in the aggregate, approximates the full index in terms of key characteristics. As we can see here, VTS is made up of 3638 holdings where the top 10 represent 17.2% of the total ETF. Companies like Apple, Microsoft, Alphabet, Amazon, and Facebook. So in this video, I’m going to specifically talk about which ETFs I chose and the reasons behind those decisions. First of all, I decided to buy only Vanguard ETFs. Vanguard is one of the big players and typically has low fees and a solid performance history for their index funds. I believe they were the first ones to come up with the whole idea of indexing. You can take a look for yourself at the full list of Vanguard ETFs. They include ETFs for fixed interest, property, Australian shares, international shares, and their own diversified ETFs which are made up of various proportions of the previous four categories. MY FINAL ETF PORTFOLIO 25% VAS, 25% VGS and VGAD, and 25% VAE. That covers Australia, North America, Europe and Asia. I’m planning to stick with this allocation for at least the next few years. With ETFs, you really have to. Even though they’re tradeable on the stock exchange, you’ve got to treat them like a long term investment. So if their value goes down in the short term, don’t sell them – you’d only be locking in a loss.

Podcast: EP5- ETF's and Index Funds
 
32:32
This podcast explains ETF's and index funds, it describes what they are and how to invest in them. An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a marketable security that tracks a stock index, most ETF’s are passively managed while some are actively managed. While most ETFs track stock indexes, there are also ETFs that invest in commodity markets, currencies, bonds, and other asset classes. Many ETFs also have options available for investors to use income, speculation, or hedging strategies. An index fund is a type of mutual fund or ETF with a portfolio constructed to match or track the components of a financial market index, such as the Standard & Poor's 500 Index (S&P 500). An index mutual fund is said to provide broad market exposure, low operating expenses (That’s expense ratios) and low portfolio turnover. These funds follow their benchmark index no matter what the state of the markets is. Index funds like most ETF’s are passively managed once they pick stocks for an index fund and ETF they rarely buy, and sell other securities for that fund. Where an actively managed fund which is your traditional mutual fund is constantly managed meaning the portfolio manager trades more often which will have more taxable capital gains.

Columbia Active ETFs Strive to Beat Benchmarks
 
03:03
Most ETFs are passively managed portfolios that track indices of stocks and bonds. However, some firms such as Columbia Management oversee actively managed ETFs that try to beat rather than follow the benchmark. ETF Trends Editor Tom Lydon recently sat down with Chet Chappell, Columbia Management's Vice President of ETFs, to discuss the firm's lineup of five active ETFs. It has a trio of stock funds and two fixed-income portfolios. "With active management you're just trying to beat a benchmark, you're not trying to replicate that index," Chappell says. At the active ETFs, the management teams try to move in and out of securities based on research, he tells Lydon. Columbia, a subsidiary of Ameriprise Financial (NYSE: AMP), acquired Grail Advisors and its ETF business in 2011. Columbia's managers also pilot mutual funds so they bring experience to the active ETFs, Chappell said. Its five ETFs are Columbia Concentrated Large Cap Value Strategy Fund (NYSEArca: GVT), Columbia Growth Equity Strategy Fund (NYSEArca: RPX), Columbia Large-Cap Growth Equity Strategy Fund (NYSEArca: RWG), Columbia Intermediate Municipal Bond Strategy Fund (NYSEArca: GMMB) and Columbia Core Bond Strategy Fund (GMTB).

Active Funds; Actively try to beat a benchmark performance (such as an index) by picking individual groups of stocks that will outperform the market. Passive Funds; Attempt to mirror the performance of an index by holding groups of stocks that reflect the underlying index as per its constituents and their relative proportion within the index.

Marijuana ETFs Could Tap into a Fast-Growing, Emerging Asset
 
05:33
Market traders are getting high off marijuana investments, and many are looking to exchange traded funds as a way to tap into this emerging asset class. "This is a developing asset class," Tim Seymour, Founder & CIO, Seymour Asset Management, said at Inside ETFs 2019. We are seeing "some of the same parallels in the asset class as I've seen when investing in Russian in the mid-90s, or Brazil in 2001, or early stages in the commodities super-cycle are at work here," he added. To help investors gain exposure to this emerging asset category, Amplify ETF Trust has partnered with Seymour in filing for the actively managed Amplify Seymour Alternative Plant Economy ETF, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission exemptive relief filing. No ticker or management fee was included. The Amplify Seymour Alternative Plant Economy ETF tries to invest in the equity securities of companies engaged in cannabis and hemp-related activities selected by the Fund’s investment adviser, or Seymour.

Lambert Capital Management - Active verses Passive
 
01:41
Hi my name is Joseph Lambert a portfolio manager with Lambert Capital Management. The debate rages on about active vs. passive investment management. At Lambert Capital Management we are active managers and use ETFs in some portfolios. According to this chart active management seems to have better performance in declining markets. One reason for this behavior is the underlying structure of active and passive funds. Passive funds like ETFs are designed to track a particular index or benchmark. This means that when the benchmark experiences poor performance, the ETF also fares badly. On the other hand, active managers may be able to quickly adjust their portfolios depending on the underlying market conditions. This may be one reason for better performance in down markets. Making a choice between active and passive investing isn’t an easy one. When deciding which style of management is better for you, it is important to take into account several factors, such as costs, style, risk, transparency of investments, manager performance, and tax implications. You may have found me under Joseph Lambert Chief Investment Officer of Lambert Private Equity, LLC. In that entity we do not accept outside investor funds. This is Joseph Lambert, Portfolio Manager at Lambert Capital Management.

Do you own any actively managed mutual funds in your investment portfolio? Why? The historical evidence is overwhelming: over time, passive ETFs and index funds outperform most active money managers. And on average, mutual funds charge more than ETFs. You got that right: ETFs charge less and often provide greater return. And they often have hold more individual securities, thus they likely have less risk too! it is time to invest smarter. Independent. Fee only. Fiduciary.

High Yield Monthly Dividend Stock - 11% per Year
 
07:08
This video covers a high paying monthly dividend stock (CGO) and how monthly dividends work. This example CGO is a Closed End Fund which is a publicly traded investment company that can invent in Stocks, Bonds, and other types of investments. CEF's usually have higher dividends that can reach close to 12% per year or 1% per month and the dividends are provided to you monthly (in some cases). Unlike a stock a Closed End Fund's share represents ownership in a portfolio of securities that are actively managed by an investment manager. In this case it is Calamos Investments but this just happens to be the stock we are using as an example. If you are interested in seeing how a high monthly dividend (CEF) works then watch this video. We cover the basics to get you started researching these type of funds so that you can start your investment strategy. Disclaimer: I'm not a licensed investment advisor, and today's video is just for entertainment and fun. This video is NOT investment advice. I am using CGO as an example only and you need to consult with your own investment professional and do your own research to make sure the fund you pick is right for you and your future money goals.

AdvisorShares & Peritus Asset Management Celebrate Listing of First High-Yield Actively Managed ETF
 
01:16
On Tuesday, February 19, executives and guests of Peritus Asset Management (Peritus) and AdvisorShares will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to ring the Opening Bell, and to celebrate the listing of the AdvisorShares Peritus High Yield ETF (NYSE Arca: HYLD), the first high-yield actively managed ETF on the market. Peritus believes active management is essential in optimizing returns by procuring securities that index-based high yield ETFs cannot access due to a limited investable universe. With no restrictions on bond tranches in HYLD's investment universe, avoiding credit problems is essential as Peritus strongly emphasizes managing risk. HYLD's active management within an asset class that is not easily indexable delivers the same ETF vehicle benefits that investors and financial professionals appreciate-intraday liquidity, better trading control, limit orders, transparency, and a more operationally efficient structure that reduces expenses and can be more tax-aware. In celebration of the occasion, Tim Gramatovich, CIO, and Ron Heller, CEO of Peritus will ring the NYSE Opening Bell with Noah Hamman, CEO of AdvisorShares. Mr. Hamman will be ringing the bell in honor of David Nichols Jr., a founding Board member of AdvisorShares, who recently passed away. About AdvisorShares: AdvisorShares is one of the leading providers of actively managed ETFs offering domestic, international, alternative and fixed income products. As of 1/31/2013 AdvisorShares offers 17 active ETFs with over $600,000,000 of assets under management. About AdvisorShares Peritus High Yield ETF (NYSE Arca: HYLD): Launched on December 1, 2010, HYLD invests in a focused portfolio of high yield debt securities that, via their coupons, generate a high current income stream with a secondary goal of capital appreciation. Peritus Asset Management, the portfolio manager of HYLD, takes a value-based, active credit approach to the markets, largely foregoing new issue participation, favoring instead the secondary market where they believes there is less competition and more opportunities for capital gains. HYLD de-emphasizes relative value in favor of long-term, absolute returns. Additional information about HYLD can be found at http://hyld.advisorshares.com/. About Peritus Asset Management: Peritus Asset Management is a SEC-registered investment advisor headquartered in Santa Barbara, CA, with approximately $315 million dollars in assets under management as of 1/31/2013. Founders Tim Gramatovich and Ron Heller began their partnership in 1995. Peritus is a value based, active credit investment manager providing services to institutions and retail investors.

What is EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND? What does EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND mean?

What is EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND? What does EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND mean? EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND meaning - EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND definition - EXCHANGE-TRADED FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks. An ETF holds assets such as stocks, commodities, or bonds, and trades close to its net asset value over the course of the trading day. Most ETFs track an index, such as a stock index or bond index. ETFs may be attractive as investments because of their low costs, tax efficiency, and stock-like features. By 2013, ETFs were the most popular type of exchange-traded product. Only authorized participants, large broker-dealers who have entered into agreements with the ETF's distributor, actually buy or sell shares of an ETF directly from or to the ETF, and then only in creation units, which are large blocks of tens of thousands of ETF shares, usually exchanged in-kind with baskets of the underlying securities. Authorized participants may wish to invest in the ETF shares for the long-term, but they usually act as market makers on the open market, using their ability to exchange creation units with their underlying securities to provide liquidity of the ETF shares and help ensure that their intraday market price approximates the net asset value of the underlying assets. Other investors, such as individuals using a retail broker, trade ETF shares on this secondary market. An ETF combines the valuation feature of a mutual fund or unit investment trust, which can be bought or sold at the end of each trading day for its net asset value, with the tradability feature of a closed-end fund, which trades throughout the trading day at prices that may be more or less than its net asset value. Closed-end funds are not considered to be ETFs, even though they are funds and are traded on an exchange. ETFs have been available in the US since 1993 and in Europe since 1999. ETFs traditionally have been index funds, but in 2008 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission began to authorize the creation of actively managed ETFs. ETFs offer both tax efficiency and lower transaction costs. More than two trillion dollars have been invested in ETFs since they were first introduced in the United States in 1993. By the end of 2015, ETFs offered "1,800 different products, covering almost every conceivable market sector, niche and trading strategy".

It’s simple, really. ETFs are baskets of securities designed to provide exposure to different areas of the market. If used correctly, ETFs may be powerful tools for building solid, well-diversified portfolios. If you want exposure to the S&P 500 Index, there’s an ETF for that. Brazilian equities? Corporate bonds? Municipal bonds? Commodities? Yes to all. Let’s look at three key attributes of ETFs. The first attribute is hinted at by the name: exchange-traded funds. ETFs trade throughout the day, like stocks, meaning you can buy or sell them any time the market is open. But intraday trading introduces new challenges and costs. As with stocks, you must pay a spread when you buy or sell an ETF. Unless an ETF is part of a commission-free trading program, you must pay a commission too. Be sure to pay attention to any short-term trading fees that may be incurred within a prescribed time frame when selling an ETF. And while most ETFs trade close to their net asset value, you’ll want to keep an eye on less liquid ETFs to make sure you’re getting a fair price, too. ETFs may trade at a price that is higher (premium) or lower (discount) to their net asset value. The second attribute is cost. Let’s review a few of the reasons ETFs can be a cost efficient investment. For starters, most ETFs are index funds, which means they track the returns of a market index and are passively managed. This type of passively managed product tends to be less expensive than an actively managed product. Secondly, the ETF structure itself provides cost advantages: recordkeeping, transfer agent and other fees may be lower for ETFs than for traditional mutual funds. ETF companies may pass some of these savings along to you, the investor. Remember, though, to consider the costs of trading the ETF before you buy. Just because it has a lower headline expense ratio does not necessarily mean it’s cheaper to own when you consider other costs. The third attribute is tax efficiency. One of the ways that ETFs have the potential to be tax efficient is because there are typically fewer taxable events in an ETF. For example, if you own shares of an ETF, and another shareholder decides to sell some of his shares, that shareholder simply sells the shares to another investor…very similar to selling a stock. In this scenario, there would generally be no capital gains transactions for the other shareholders of the ETF. Keep in mind, the tax treatment from one ETF to another can differ and you should always be sure to read the prospectus for specific details. One last hint when considering ETFs: Be careful when selecting which ETF to buy. While many ETFs sound similar, they don’t always provide the same exposure. Two different biotech ETFs, for instance, can hold very different stocks, and their annual performance can vary quite a bit. Like any investment, you have to do your research and make sure you know what you’re buying. Remember, ETFs are another tool in your investing toolbox, and like any tool, the more you understand how to use them, the more effectively you can put them to work.

What is an ETF? Introduction – Why Invest in Stocks? So why prefer stocks when there are other financial instruments? The simple answer is that stocks go up in value in the long run. The US Stocks have consistently outperformed inflation and have generated real returns despite various drawbacks. There has never been more money supply by the government than today, and all this money goes into assets, as a result we have "asset price inflation". This is just an economic expression for when the prices of bonds, shares, their derivatives, real estate and other capital goods increase in price as opposed to inflation of goods and services. And right now asset price inflation is mostly in stocks. To drive home my point, stocks have increased 4x since 2009. This brings us to a financial instrument that makes it easy to invest in the broad stock market, ETFs! What is an ETF (or exchange traded fund)? Let’s start off with the perfect context, what is a fund? At its core a fund is a collection point for investors’ capital. The way it works is that thousands of investors pool their investments together in a fund, and a professional, the fund manager, invests these funds as profitably as possible while diversifying. But these investments are done according to a planned investment strategy. It is through investment strategy that allocation of funds to various asset classes such as bonds, stocks, commodities is determined. Bear in mind that in a fund, the investor’s assets are segregated, which means that the funds are held by a depository bank, separate from the company assets. This is to protect investor’s money in case the investment company becomes insolvent. The typical investment fund is active, which means that the fund manager is responsible for achieving returns higher than the benchmark. This active fund management is different from managing index funds. What is an index fund? An index fund represents the development of an index as accurately as possible. The components and their respective weight, in an index funds are exactly the same as the index itself. If you invest in an index fund, you have the advantage of knowing the exact composition since it replicates the index. For instance, the underlying composition of EURO STOXX 50 is known at any given time. The EURO STOXX 50 is the European stock index and holds 50 of the largest corporate stocks of Euro zone in a proportion determined by their free float market cap. In an Exchange traded fund or an index fund, there is no complicated mechanism for stock picking, it’s simply a replication of an index, as opposed to active funds. And this is why managers of index funds and ETFs receive small annual fee. What is an Exchange Traded Fund? Exchange traded fund or an ETF, is exactly what it sounds like, a fund that’s traded on an exchange, like the stock of a company. ETFs combine the benefits of intraday trading and liquidity of stocks, with the diversification of index funds. A simple way to understand ETF is to imagine an asset manager that buys a bunch of assets, say, 100 stocks of FTSE 100, and puts them in a fund. To be clear, FTSE 100 (total return) index tracks 100 largest stocks in the U.K. Now the asset manager, gets this fund listed on the stock exchange like a company, and issues its shares to public. An actual example of this strategy is iShares Core FTSE 100 UCITS ETF (Dist)… An ETF that seeks to track the performance of FTSE 100 index. The names of many ETFs might sound too long and complicated but when you break them down they make sense. For instance, iShares represents the family of exchange-traded funds managed by BlackRock, an American global investment firm, it’s the world’s largest asset manager with about $5.7 trillion asset under management. Core FTSE 100 part represents investment style, which in this case is to track the performance of FTSE 100 index. The last part UCITS stands for “Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities”. In simple terms, it only means a European mutual fund. Here it represents the investment structure of the ETF. Similarly you can break down Vanguard S&P 500 UCITS ETF. Vanguard is a huge name, it is an American investment advisor with over $4.5 trillion of assets under management. S&P 500 part is the investment style, which means that it tracks the performance of S&P 500 index. When the underlying assets (the assets that an ETF holds) appreciate in value, the price of that ETF on the exchange also goes up conversely, when the assets’ depreciate in value, the price of the ETF on the exchange goes down in value. ETFs go through price changes during market hours as they are bought and sold. Which is why these typically have higher liquidity and lower fees compared to mutual fund shares. This makes them an attractive investment for individual investors.

In this video we would like to introduce you to funds and ETFs that can be traded via Swissquote. When buying a fund unit, a share in the special fund of an investment company is acquired. This company is made up of fund managers who manage the assets, while structuring the fund accordingly. Funds can invest in equities, bonds, real estate, commodities, and money-market investments. Since multiple investors invest in a fund, the fund manager has at his disposal a lot more capital that he can optimally diversify across different markets and industries. When purchasing the fund units, a one-off front-end load is charged as a fee. In addition, an annual management fee and administrative charge will have to be paid. Besides the classic actively managed funds, there is the more recent type of investment known as exchange traded fund, or ETF for short. This passively managed and exchange-tradeable fund allows investors to buy a whole basket of securities (i.e. shares, sectors or regions). Since the ETFs accurately track an index whose composition is published on a daily basis, investors will find it easy to understand pricing. ETFs are traded like ordinary shares: they can be bought and sold at any time and also allow limit and stop orders to be placed. In addition, they allow long and short positions, the use of leverage and a high transaction speed. _____ Did you like this video ?

Actively Managed Fund Vs Index Investing
 
04:00
Actively managed funds vs Index Investing explained more in my Investing Basics eBook here: http://bit.ly/Investing-bricks Financial Coach and Women and Money Author Camille Gaines discusses the difference between actively managed funds and index investing. An actively managed fund has a manager or a team of managers that make decisions about which stocks to buy, based on certain criteria such as price, valuations or technical analysis. They may even go visit companies to decide which companies to invest buy for the fund. Actively managed funds, because of their nature and having a team and research department, usually cost more than an index fund. An index fund is referred to as a passively managed fund since there is not an actively managed fund. With index investing, the fund simply holds the securities or stocks that make up the index.

Do Low-Cost Investments Give Investors Higher Returns?
 
07:42
Many investors are too fixated on picking the right stocks at the right time. Instead, they should be fixated on their total return after all fees. Watch this video as Vincent Tey, Head of Advisory Team at Providend, shares why active management is a zero-sum game before cost, and the winners have to win at the expense of the losers. If you would like to have a higher certainty of obtaining better investment returns, please feel free to contact us at https://www.providend.com/service-enquiry/ or at 6309 2488 for an exploratory session today. _______________________________________________________ 1. What Are The Costs Involved In Investing In A Fund? There are two kinds of fees - Transaction Fees and Annual Expense Fees. Transaction fee is the one-time fee that investors incur when invest into a fund. They are called sales charge, upfront fee and in some cases, it is the difference between the buying and selling price of the fund and we call them bid and offer spread. There is no debate about it, the lower the cost, the better the returns. Investors also should be careful of excessive switching fee if the account applies switching fee. One other form of transaction fee that investors should be careful of is redemption penalty in some investment structure. Be careful not to get into such structures. For annual expense fee, it is the management fee, trading cost and also marketing expense of running a fund, also known as Total Expense Ratio (TER). Now as investors when we invest into a fund, our expectation is that with the fund managers’ education, skills and superior resources and time in monitoring the investment, they should consistently deliver better returns. In reality, however, research and historical data have shown that actively managed funds that charges high fees have consistently underperformed low cost index funds. 2. What Are The Different Investment Approaches? Essentially, we can approach investment in two ways - passive investment or active investment. Passive investment refers to the buy and hold approach where we buy into a passively managed fund or known as index fund. Passive investors believe that the market is efficient. They have the confidence that the price reflects the collective knowledge of all the investors and it is hard to consistently find mispriced securities. Passively managed funds usually have low annual expense of about 0.5% per annum or lower. Active investment seeks to outperform the index through stock picking, market timing or sector rotation. They are called active funds. The fund managers can find any stock that is listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange and not limited to the STI component stocks. They believe that they can find mispricing securities, buy low and sell high. They also believe that they know which sector will do better or the market will go up or down in the future and profit from there. The annual expense of active funds is at about 2% or higher. 3. So, How Is The Performance Like For Each Investment Approach? According to the data compiled by S&P Dow Jones Indices, the number of active managed U.S. equity funds that beat the S&P 500 index over a period of ten years is less than 15%. Overwhelmingly, majority of the funds failed to beat the index or the benchmark. Even in less efficient markets such as the Emerging Market, the number of actively managed Emerging Market funds in the U.S. that beat the S&P/IFCI index over a period of ten years is only around 18%. Survivorship of the active funds is an even more worrying fact for investors beside underperformance. Over ten years, only 54.35% of the active funds that are benchmarked against the S&P 500 Index survived with the rest closing or merging with another fund. So, choosing an active fund that outperform the index is one challenge. Choosing one that will still be in business over ten years is another. 4. Why Do Most Active Funds Underperform? One clear reason is fee. Before cost, active investment is a zero-sum game. Active investors that earn above market returns at the expense of other active investors. For example, let's assume that there are only two fund managers in the markets - A and B. And let’s assume that the markets give a return of 10%. So, if Fund Manager A earns a return of 15%, that would mean Fund Manager B will only earn 5%. After cost, however, active investment is a negative-sum game. Let’s assume that the running cost of both the funds is 2%. That would mean that Fund A will earn a net return of 13% and that of Fund B is only 3%. The average of these two funds is 8% which is 2% below the market return because of cost. ________________________________________________________ Follow Providend on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Providend/ Follow Providend on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/providend/

Active Fund Management and why the costs outweigh the benefits.
 
03:42
The sheer number of active fund managers coupled with the shared technologies that they all utilize for analysis and decisions results in most of them coming to similar conclusions about how securities and commodities are going to perform. Only a small fraction of actively managed funds succeed in meeting their benchmarks yet they still charge high fees compared to their passively managed counterparts.
Index Mutual Funds, ETFs, Annuities & Life Insurance - Steve Savant’s Money – Part 5 of 5
 
10:40
Sub Headline: There’s a Variety of Ways to Participate in Index Investments Synopsis: One reason for the popularity of index- based funds is that they tend to cost investors less than actively managed funds. That’s because index-based fund portfolios are determined by the relevant indexes, and not by professional managers. Watch part 5 Index Mutual Funds, ETFs Options; Annuities & Life Insurance from the series Index Investing with syndicated financial columnist and talk show host Steve Savant. Content: Each index fund’s prospectus explains its approach to selecting investments,as well as providing its expense ratio, historical returns, risk profile, and other fund information. Most index funds are full replication funds. That means they buy all of the securities in the funds they track. Others are sample-based. Providers of these funds may use complex mathematical models to identify securities from among those in the index or look for price inconsistencies on which they can capitalize. An enhanced index fund chooses selectively from a particular index portfolio in order to produce a slightly higher return. The goal is to narrowly beat the index by anywhere from a fraction of a percent to two percent-age points but not more, since a wider spread would classify the enhanced fund as an actively managed mutual fund rather than an index fund. Enhanced index fund managers may achieve higher returns by identifyingthe undervalued stocks in the index, adjusting the holdings to include a larger proportion of securities in higher- performing sectors, or using other investment strategies, such as buying derivatives or using leverage. While enhanced index funds may expose you to the risk of greater losses than their plain-vanilla counterparts, they may also offer an opportunity for higher returns. Quant funds are named for their quantitative investment style. They aim to beat the index funds they imitate by relying solely on statistical analysis to decide which securities will top the benchmarks. For example, instead of buying all the stocks in the S&P 500, a quant fund provider would buy selected stocks that its analyses indicate will turn a higher profit. But no indexing approach guarantees a strong return or protects against losses in a falling market. The vast majority of ETFs are index- based, which means that the ETF port- folio is determined by the components of the particular index to which the fund is linked. For example, the first commercial ETF, the SPDR—short for Standard & Poor’s Depository Receipts and pronounced “spider”—holds all the stocks in the S&P 500. ETFs are fully transparent, which means you can find the current list of securities an ETF holds on the fund provider’s website at any time. In con- trast, actively managed mutual funds update their list of holdings quarterly but aren’t required to report any portfo- lio changes that occur within a quarter.

What is an ETF? | Vanguard adviser and client education centre
 
02:56
Exchange traded funds, or ETFS, are attracting increasing attention from investors, with a growing range of products available. So it’s no wonder that ETFs have become the talk of Australian watercoolers and BBQs. Traditionally, ETFs have used an indexing approach where the ETF is made up of holdings in different companies that when combined together replicate an index like the ASX 300 or the S&P 500. Like a traditional index managed fund, an ETF’s return should closely match the benchmark it tracks. But unlike a traditional managed fund ETFs are traded daily on the stock exchange. So these types of ETF combine the benefits of index funds – diversification, low fees, and low portfolio turnover – with the benefits of individual shares traded on an exchange – continuous pricing and trading flexibility. As the ETF market has evolved, investors now have access to a wider variety of ETF products across the risk spectrum—from diversified and factor-based ETFs through to more leveraged ETFs that may offer the potential for higher returns, but with a higher risk. You can buy and sell ETFs on the stock exchange through a full-service advisory broker or an online broker. Like shares, you can trade ETFs through market orders and limit orders. With a market order, the investor places an order in the market to buy or sell ETFs at the best available price. With a limit order, the investor places an order in the market to buy a quantity of an ETF at or below a specified price, or to sell it at or above a specified price. Benefits of ETFs: ETFs are typically low cost—they generally cost less than actively managed funds, and substantially less than buying individual shares. Index ETFs are diversified—they can provide you with broad exposure to entire markets within an index, including securities you may not be able to access on the ASX such as international equities. ETFs can be tax efficient—indexing’s low turnover minimises capital gains. And ETFs are generally liquid—you can buy and sell ETF units easily and quickly on the exchange. ETFs are transparent—prices are updated continuously throughout the day to reflect price changes in the underlying securities. It’s important to be aware that ETF prices can fluctuate within a wide range just like the overall share market, so before investing in one you should consider your goals and tolerance for market ups and downs, and select an ETF that’s right for you. When you invest with Vanguard, you have more than 40 years of investing experience behind you. So no matter which type of investment vehicle suits your needs, you can feel confident that Vanguard investments are built on a rigorous investment philosophy that stands the test of time.

Active Money Management with ETFs - Steve Savant’s Money- Part 4 of 5
 
10:19
Sub Headline: Your Risk Portfolio May Benefit from ETFs Synopsis: Many retirees have some money in the market as an inflation hedge and as a growth strategy with discretionary retirement monies. ETFs (exchange traded funds) can provide both, and perhaps at a reduced cost compared to their mutual fund counterparts. You may want to include active money management from a Registered Investment Adviser (RIA). Watch the interview with financial planner Sean Humeston. Content: Most ETFs are designed to track a particular market index, such as the S&P 500. Other ETFs follow market segments (small-, mid-, or large-cap stocks), individual countries, specific industry sectors, or commodities such as gold or oil. But keep in mind, you may need active money management from an RIA. ETFs don’t deal directly with individual investors, and use an institutional investor that can then sell the ETF shares to individual investors on the open market. If an individual wishes to sell shares, he or she can do so by selling to other individual investors on the open market. To complete the redemption, the fund does not have to sell anything; it simply distributes the underlying securities to the institutional investor and then dismantles the creation unit. Some of the advantages of an ETF fund: Usually lower expense loads: Because they do not have operational costs, many ETFs have low annual expense ratios. (Don’t forget to review the prospectus) Tax Favored: Low frequency trading may lead to some degree of tax efficiency. Trading: ETF shares are bought and sold on the open market, an investor can use trading tools such as limit or stop-loss orders, “sell short” the ETF shares, or even trade the shares on margin, using borrowed money. Generally, no required minimum investment: No minimum purchase requirements are needed to buy shares in an ETF. Some of the disadvantages of an ETF fund: Commission charges: Some ETFs offer non-commission ETF product lines, but many are traded with commission transactional costs. Client services: There may be limited services offered from the ETF manufacturer. Fee based RIAs may offer supplemental services for a fee. ETFs are an option to consider when you’re seeking a financial product that generally has lower costs, some tax efficiencies and can be traded on the open market. Keep in mind that potential purchasers of ETFs need to perform a risk tolerance test and confirm their time horizons for suitability to achieve their mid to long term goals. You may need active money management oversight from an RIA. Syndicated financial columnist Steve Savant interviews financial planner Sean Humeston.

Active ETFs to Help Fixed-Income Investors Navigate Rising Rates
 
04:06
After the three-decade long bull run in the fixed-income market, investors may be looking to actively managed bond ETFs that can better navigate the potential changes ahead. "I think the timing for active is a great opportunity. Basically, late in the cycle, you're going to have winners and losers, so now is exactly the time when you want that expertise, that credit research, demonstrated investment process," Paul Kim, Managing Director of ETF Strategy at Principal Global Investors, said at the 2018 Morningstar Investment Conference. For example, the Principal EDGE Active Income ETF (NYSEArca: YLD) is an actively managed multi-asset fund. Multi-asset exchange traded funds have provided diversified exposure to a group of various asset classes and generated attractive yields and have become income investor favorites as advisors and investors searched for new yield sources amid several years of rock-bottom U.S. interest rates.

ETFs vs. Index Funds: Investing 101 w/ Doug Flynn, CFP
 
05:34
Doug Flynn, CFP, of Flynn Zito Capital Management, LLC on ETFs vs. Index Funds. Ali: Explain the difference between an ETF and a mutual fund... Doug: Well an ETF is a mutual fund that you know and love, but it trades on the exchange, so you can buy throughout the day. Versus a traditional fund which trades once a day at the end of the day. Ali: Okay, so let's talk about index funds, which really came first. First you had stocks, then you had index funds. Doug: Yes, an index fund is just trying to replicate a particular index, which you can't invest in directly, but this is a way to replicate that. So if you like the stocks in the S&P 500, or the stocks in the Dow... Ali: It used to be that you could just read about the stocks in the Dow or the S&P 500, and buy the individual stocks. If you wanted to, you could buy all thirty in the Dow... Doug: That's right. Ali: But then, we came up with index funds, which said, "You can do the Dow, you can do the S&P 500, you can do the Nasdaq, you can do...I don't know...Easter European industries. Doug: Exactly, and that is going to track an index, there isn't a lot of trading or active management in there. You can do that in a traditional mutual fund format or in an ETF, which is the exchange traded version of that, which just means it trades throughout the day. Ali: Generally speaking, index brought the management fees, these fees associated with mutual funds, down, because there's not somebody doing a lot of active work, and ETFs brought them down further. Doug: Correct. Ali: So why would I choose one vs. the other? Doug: So if you buy an ETF, you're typically placing a trade like a stock. So, if you're with an online broker, they're typically going to charge you some type of a trading fee to do that, whereas a mutual fund may have a minimum, but won't necessarily have a transaction charge to do that. There are some cases where that isn't the case. Ali: If you're doing this for fees, you better look at this and understand that you're paying for trades. Doug: Yeah. Most people are putting money away each month. You know, one hundred dollars per month is what they're doing. You can't really do that with an ETF because you're making a transaction every single time. That's where a mutual fund might be better. Ali: So you're putting one hundred bucks a month away, but you're paying ten dollars for the transaction, you gotta weigh that in. Doug: Maybe you use the index fund for a little while, and then you have $10,000, and then you can actually do those transactions. So that's where you might want it in different ways. And that's where it's cheaper. Like anything else, the more money you have, it might be a little bit cheaper. Ali: One thing you warn is not all ETFs are created equal. What do you mean by that? Doug: Well as an example, the two major providers, there's Vanguard, there's i Shares, which are two different providers of ETFs. And you have to look at the structure. And the structure of i shares in particular, they're completely separate, which means their tax ramifications are very low. They don't necessarily pay capital gains to speak of because they're just trading in and out of the ETF structure by itself: it's a stand-alone ETF. Vanguard did what is kind of a bolt-on to its existing mutual funds. What's happened there, is some cases, when the fund pays a capital gains distribution... Ali: Because they sold a stock at a profit... Doug: Right, a large institution wants to sell a bunch of their funds, it transfers into the ETF itself. So all ETFs are not created equal, and you should look at, if I want bond index ETFs, look a little bit deeper and look where are there capital gains distributions. Many people know there are these issues in traditional mutual funds that are actively managed. And they don't scroll down and see if there are differences between the different ETF providers. Ali: And of course that makes a difference depending on how you're investing. Whether this is inside a tax-preferred investment, or it's just out in the open. Doug: If it's an IRA it doesn't really matter, but if it's in a taxable accound, the last thing you want is further tax surprises you thought you were avoiding by being in ETF format. Ali: This is a business for people who feel they're not going to outperform the market with their own selections. Doug: Exactly, you've said in a particular area I don't think I can bring value, I can't find a manager who will bring value in a particular are, I'm just going to index then. And as a portfolio manager and as people who manage money, there are times when we find that you can't bring value with managers, and that they're out of favor, and you might index more. But we're agnostic.

What is ACTIVE MANAGEMENT? What does ACTIVE MANAGEMENT mean? ACTIVE MANAGEMENT meaning
 
10:23
What is ACTIVE MANAGEMENT? What does ACTIVE MANAGEMENT mean? ACTIVE MANAGEMENT meaning - ACTIVE MANAGEMENT definition - ACTIVE MANAGEMENT explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Active management (also called active investing) refers to a portfolio management strategy where the manager makes specific investments with the goal of outperforming an investment benchmark index. In passive management, investors expect a return that closely replicates the investment weighting and returns of a benchmark index and will often invest in an index fund. Ideally, the active manager exploits market inefficiencies by purchasing securities (stocks etc.) that are undervalued or by short selling securities that are overvalued. Either of these methods may be used alone or in combination. Depending on the goals of the specific investment portfolio, hedge fund or mutual fund, active management may also serve to create less volatility (or risk) than the benchmark index. The reduction of risk may be instead of, or in addition to, the goal of creating an investment return greater than the benchmark. Active portfolio managers may use a variety of factors and strategies to construct their portfolio(s). These include quantitative measures such as price–earnings ratios and PEG ratios, sector investments that attempt to anticipate long-term macroeconomic trends (such as a focus on energy or housing stocks), and purchasing stocks of companies that are temporarily out-of-favor or selling at a discount to their intrinsic value. Some actively managed funds also pursue strategies such as risk arbitrage, short positions, option writing, and asset allocation. Using the concept of asset allocation, researchers divide active management into two parts; one part is selecting securities within an asset class, while the other part is selecting between asset classes. For example, a large-cap U.S. stock fund might decide which large-cap U.S. stocks to include in the fund. Then those stocks will do better or worse than the class in general. Another fund may choose to move money between bonds and stocks, or some country versus a different one, et cetera. Then one class will do worse or better than the other class. The case where a fund changes its class of assets is called style drift. An example would be where a fund that normally invests in government bonds switches into stocks of small companies in emerging markets. Although this gives the most discretion to the manager, it also makes it difficult for the investor (portfolio manager) if he also has a target of asset allocation. The effectiveness of an actively managed investment portfolio obviously depends on the skill of the manager and research staff but also on how the term active is defined. Many mutual funds purported to be actively managed stay fully invested regardless of market conditions, with only minor allocation adjustments over time. Other managers will retreat fully to cash, or use hedging strategies during prolonged market declines. These two groups of active managers will often have very different performance characteristics. Approximately 20% of all mutual funds are pure index funds. The balance are actively managed in some respect. In reality, a large percentage of actively managed mutual funds rarely outperform their index counterparts over an extended period of time because 45% of all mutual funds are "closet indexers" — funds whose portfolios look like indexes and whose performance is very closely correlated to an index (see the term R2 or R-squared to determine correlations) but call themselves active to justify higher management fees. Prospectuses of closet indexers will often include language such as "80% of holdings will be large cap growth stocks within the S&P 500" causing the majority of their performance to be directly dependent upon the performance of the growth stock index they are benchmarking, less the larger fees.

For anyone who doesn't know what an ETF is I will leave it below. Now an ETF section has been added to the course which is also another benefit of this learn plan profit course because even though you have made the one off payment of $299 it constantly gets updated which you do not get charged for so it is an added benefit. n exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund traded on stock exchanges, much like stocks.[1][2] An ETF holds assets such as stocks, commodities, or bonds and generally operates with an arbitrage mechanism designed to keep it trading close to its net asset value,[3] although deviations can occasionally occur. Most ETFs track an index, such as a stock index or bond index. ETFs may be attractive as investments because of their low costs, tax efficiency, and stock-like features.[4][5] By 2013, ETFs had become the most popular type of exchange-traded product.[citation needed] ETF distributors only buy or sell ETFs directly from or to authorized participants, which are large broker-dealers with whom they have entered into agreements—and then, only in creation units, which are large blocks of tens of thousands of ETF shares, usually exchanged in-kind with baskets of the underlying securities. Authorized participants may wish to invest in the ETF shares for the long-term, but they usually act as market makers on the open market, using their ability to exchange creation units with their underlying securities to provide liquidity of the ETF shares and help ensure that their intraday market price approximates the net asset value of the underlying assets.[3] Other investors, such as individuals using a retail broker, trade ETF shares on this secondary market. An ETF combines the valuation feature of a mutual fund or unit investment trust, which can be bought or sold at the end of each trading day for its net asset value, with the tradability feature of a closed-end fund, which trades throughout the trading day at prices that may be more or less than its net asset value. Closed-end funds are not considered to be ETFs, even though they are funds and are traded on an exchange. ETFs have been available in the US since 1993 and in Europe since 1999. ETFs traditionally have been index funds, but in 2008 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission began to authorize the creation of actively managed ETFs.[3] ETFs offer both tax efficiency as well as lower transaction and management costs. More than US$2 trillion were invested in ETFs in the United States between when they were introduced in 1993 and 2015. By the end of 2015, ETFs offered "1,800 different products, covering almost every conceivable market sector, niche and trading strategy" Thank you so much for the support.

Index Funds VS  Mutual Funds
 
06:23
Index Funds VS Mutual Funds; Get my Free Investing eBook: http://bit.ly/Investing-bricks Financial Coach and Women and Money Author Camille Gaines discusses the difference between index vs mutual funds. What is an index fund? An index fund is often a mutual fund itself because they buy what’s in the index they represent, such as the s&p500. Mutual funds are often thought of as funds with a manager picking stocks, but that is not always the case. Typically, the fees are lower with index funds vs an actively managed mutual fund. Taxes are likely lower with index funds, too. You also often have more diversification with index funds. One caveat is that with an index fund performance can’t be that stellar since the fund holds the index itself, which is a performance measurement benchmark for stocks. See my video explaining this more. Most index funds beat active funds, especially in bull markets. Do you like to research mutual funds and fund managers? If so, you may choose mutual funds vs index funds. If not, you might want to choose index funds vs mutual funds. Regardless, always understand what you’re investing in and check the price before you buy any investment. ================================================ Help me Crush the Financial Gap between Men and Women by: 1.

3/11/2010-Reuters reported Thursday that JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM) plans to enter the growing exchange-traded fund (ETF) business, according to two Securities and Exchange Commission filings. The filings sought approval for both index-based and actively managed ETFs. The strategy for JPMorgan's first actively managed ETF would be to invest in around 300 U.S. large-cap stocks across many sectors. "The process overweights inexpensive stocks with improving fundamental characteristics and underweights expensive stocks that have deteriorating fundamental characteristics," the filing said.

What Is Wrong with Mutual Funds? Fees, Earnings, and Structure of the Industry (2006)
 
02:05:11
A mutual fund is a type of professionally managed collective investment vehicle that pools money from many investors to purchase securities. While there is no legal definition of the term "mutual fund", it is most commonly applied only to those collective investment vehicles that are regulated and sold to the general public. They are sometimes referred to as "investment companies" or "registered investment companies." Most mutual funds are "open-ended," meaning investors can buy or sell shares of the fund at any time. Hedge funds are not considered a type of mutual fund. The term mutual fund is less widely used outside of the United States and Canada. For collective investment vehicles outside of the United States, see articles on specific types of funds including open-ended investment companies, SICAVs, unitized insurance funds, unit trusts and Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities, which are usually referred to by their acronym UCITS. In the United States, mutual funds must be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, overseen by a board of directors (or board of trustees if organized as a trust rather than a corporation or partnership) and managed by a registered investment adviser. Mutual funds are not taxed on their income and profits if they comply with certain requirements under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Mutual funds have both advantages and disadvantages compared to direct investing in individual securities. They have a long history in the United States. Today they play an important role in household finances, most notably in retirement planning. There are 3 types of U.S. mutual funds: open-end, unit investment trust, and closed-end. The most common type, the open-end fund, must be willing to buy back shares from investors every business day. Exchange-traded funds (or "ETFs" for short) are open-end funds or unit investment trusts that trade on an exchange. Open-end funds are most common, but exchange-traded funds have been gaining in popularity. Mutual funds are generally classified by their principal investments. The four main categories of funds are money market funds, bond or fixed income funds, stock or equity funds and hybrid funds. Funds may also be categorized as index or actively managed. Investors in a mutual fund pay the fund's expenses, which reduce the fund's returns/performance. There is controversy about the level of these expenses. A single mutual fund may give investors a choice of different combinations of expenses (which may include sales commissions or loads) by offering several different types of share classes. In the US, a mutual fund is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is overseen by a board of directors (if organized as a corporation) or board of trustees (if organized as a trust). The board is charged with ensuring that the fund is managed in the best interests of the fund's investors and with hiring the fund manager and other service providers to the fund. The fund manager, also known as the fund sponsor or fund management company, trades (buys and sells) the fund's investments in accordance with the fund's investment objective. A fund manager must be a registered investment advisor. Funds that are managed by the same fund manager and that have the same brand name are known as a "fund family" or "fund complex". Mutual funds are not taxed on their income and profits as long as they comply with requirements established in the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Specifically, they must diversify their investments, limit ownership of voting securities, distribute a high percentage of their income and capital gains (net of capital losses) to their investors annually, and earn most of the income by investing in securities and currencies.[2] Mutual funds pass taxable income on to their investors by paying out dividends and capital gains at least annually. The characterization of that income is unchanged as it passes through to the shareholders. For example, mutual fund distributions of dividend income are reported as dividend income by the investor. There is an exception: net losses incurred by a mutual fund are not distributed or passed through to fund investors but are retained by the fund to be able to offset future gains. Mutual funds may invest in many kinds of securities. The types of securities that a particular fund may invest in are set forth in the fund's prospectus, which describes the fund's investment objective, investment approach and permitted investments. The investment objective describes the type of income that the fund seeks. For example, a "capital appreciation" fund generally looks to earn most of its returns from increases in the prices of the securities it holds, rather than from dividend or interest income. The investment approach describes the criteria that the fund manager uses to select investments for the fund. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutual_funds
