Times When Exchange-Traded Funds Are Better Than Index Funds

StockRecently, Forbes contributor, Mitch Tuchman, wrote an article about inexpensive passive funds which included index funds as well as exchange-traded funds. Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider an exchange-traded fund over an index fund.

  1. You can manage your own investment portfolio.
  2. If you need alternative asset classes, an exchange-traded fund is better than an index fund.
  3. Re-balancing portfolios or investors that trade often should consider an exchange-traded fund.

See Mitch Tuchman, Investing Basics: When ETFs Are Better Than Index Funds, Forbes,  April 11, 2014.
