5 Mistakes Investors Make with ETFs | Fidelity

ETFs can be good tools for investors - when used appropriately. But with any investment, there are always things to watch out for. Number 1: Buying the Hot New Thing More than 100 new ETF products launch each year, many of them chasing the latest hot trend. Cloud computing, driverless cars, 3-D printing … you name it, there’s an ETF for that. Buying into the latest hot theme might make you big returns, but take care: These product launches may come after there has been a run up in the market. Buying at the top can be painful on the way down. Number 2: Buying Something You Don’t Understand The only thing worse than chasing the hottest trend is buying something you don’t understand. ETFs have taken institutional strategies and made them push-button-easy for everyday investors to access. Want access to commodity futures? There’s an ETF for that. 300% leverage? 200% short? Interest-rate carry plays? Yes to all. But just because you can buy something easily doesn’t mean you should. All of these funds may be good tools, but only if you know how to use them correctly. Number 3: Thinking All ETFs Are Created Equal Consider China. At the start of 2014, there were more than a dozen broad-based China ETFs. For example, had you chosen PGJ, the PowerShares Golden Dragon China ETF, at the start of the year, you would have lost more than 7% of your money. Had you instead chosen ASHR, the Deutsche Xtrackers Harvest CSI 300 China A-Shares ETF, you would have earned a 51% return. Both are “China ETFs.” Both can provide big, diversified portfolios. But ASHR has significant exposure to Chinese Ashares—largely consumer-focused stocks listed and traded on the domestic Chinese market— which performed spectacularly well in 2014. Don’t assume all ETFs are created equal. Just because two ETFs cover the same market doesn’t mean they provide the same exposure or returns. There’s no guarantee which fund will perform better in the future. But if you wanted to invest last year in the growth of the Chinese consumer and the domestic investor base there, a little bit of research would have gone a long way. Number 4: Trading…Just Because You Can Trading is central to ETFs. It’s right there in the name. But just because you can trade an ETF intraday doesn’t mean you should. Emotions are often an investor’s worst enemy. You zig when you should zag; you sell at the bottom and buy at the top. We all do sometimes. The trouble is ETFs make that even easier than traditional mutual funds. ETFs’ intraday liquidity can be great when you need to get into or out of the market quickly. But those situations are rare. Number 5: Only Using Market Orders When you do invest, consider using a limit order versus a market order. Market orders are instructions to buy or sell securities at the best possible price right now. That can work well for the most liquid ETFs, but as you move beyond the top dozen ETFs, you can find yourself getting trades executed at prices you don’t really want. Using a limit order means you agree to buy an ETF at a certain price or below, and sell it at a certain price or above. A limit order puts the control back in your hands and can help you set the price on your terms. Learn from these common mistakes to help avoid making them yourself.

Australian ETF Update August 2018
Hi guys. Just thought I’d do an update regarding my ETF investments. Things haven’t gone 100% to plan, but then again, this is my first time investing so I shouldn’t be too hard on myself. Back in early January, I had planned to stick to four ETFs. 25% in the Aussie VAS which covers the 300 largest Australian companies listed on the ASX; 25% in VGS which includes the biggest companies from around the world, mainly ones from the United States, Japan, and Europe; 25% in VGAD which is the same as VGS except that it’s hedged into Australian dollars; and 25% in VAE which gives me a low-cost exposure to big companies in Asia, not including Japan. However, after having invested over the last seven or eight months, my current allocation is as follows: 31% in VAS – I think this occurred because I was reacting to the market a little. I saw there was quite a big dip in price in February and April, so decided to buy while the market was low. I know I promised myself that I wouldn’t “play” the market, but I saw an opportunity, and I took it. Furthermore, as commenters have mentioned before, there are tax incentives for Aussie shares in the form of franking credits. So when it came to tax time recently, I didn’t have to pay as much income tax on my dividends for VAS. VGS and VGAD have pretty much gone as planned. 27% and 25% respectively. There have been a number of dips in the market, but I have held my cool and continued buying into them. VAE, which was always my riskier option, started off really well. Because it went up quite high in the first half of the year, I didn’t put so much into it. I tried to stick to the buy low strategy. But then recently, it had a fairly big drop, I guess thanks to President Trump and his trade tariffs on China. So, I’m probably not going to buy anymore of these unless I have some extra money coming my way. Anyway, I’m fairly happy with my current allocation. Now let’s get into the raw figures. I’ve bought a total of $15035 of VAE. It’s currently worth $14956. So, that’s a loss – well, not really a loss – but a reduction of 0.83% p.a. equivalent. But I always knew that was my riskier ETF. Quite frankly, the fact that there has been so much drama regarding the US and China with trade tariffs and so on, I think the result isn’t actually too bad. VAS has done quite well. Over the last seven months or so, I’ve invested about $24877 into it and have had a respectable per annum gain of 12.62% VGAD has done fairly well too with a gain of 11.14%. VGS has been my top-performer with a massive 18.07% p.a. gain. This fund is heavily affected by the US market, and recently the S&P 500 has hit record highs, so I guess that would explain the good performance of VGS. All in all, it’s been a good year so far. I’ve had a total gain of $5739.95 or 7.11% as of 28 August 2018, which equates to 11.18% p.a. Not too bad for my first crack at investing. But I’m also a realist and I realise that the markets do fluctuate. In another eight months time, I might be tearing my hair out! Actually, just a month after I bought my first round of ETFs on January 9th, there was a large market correction as you can see in this chart. There was also a dip in April. But I decided that I’m not going to be influenced by short-term volatility. To be a good investor, one has to be disciplined. I still check my ETFs everyday, but I’ve steeled myself so that I’m never tempted to sell – especially when markets are low. Anyway, I hope you’ve enjoyed this little update video. It’s good to keep track of how our plans are panning out and adjusting ourselves accordingly. Until next time, talk to you then.

🔥The Informed Investor: http://bit.ly/TheInformedInvestor1 - I Reveal My $100,000+ Stock Portfolio and Every Trade I Make! 🔥 These are the best ETFs for 2018! I chose these 4 ETFs as the best ETFs for 2018 is because they have produced excellent returns with low volatility. ETFs are a great way to get exposed to many stocks with one security, and they are usually less volatile than picking single stocks. ETFs are the way to go for investors who want to "set it and forget it". (VUG) VANGUARD GROWTH FUND - This is the single largest holding in my own personal portfoli - Give you exposure to 313 US large cap growth companies that are relatively stable - 1 year ROI = 24.27% vs. 17.93% SP 500 - 5 year ROI = 101.57% vs. 89.06% SP 500 - Top 10 Holdings = Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Alphabet (Google), Visa, Home Depot, Coca Cola, Comcast, Philip Morris - VUG holds a good mix of large cap growth companies with a solid 1.18% dividend yield make this a staple in my portfolio. (SPY) SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust - Launched in 1993, this is literally the oldest ETF in existence, and it’s been one of the most solid over the years. - The spider S&P 500 tracks all of the companies contained within...You guessed it… the S&P 500! - 1 year ROI = 18.05% - 5 year ROI = 89.61% - Top 10 holdings are Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, Johnson & Johnson, Berkshire Hathaway, JP Morgan Chase, Exxon, Google, Bank of America - This is for investors who want just a little less volatility than you would get with a growth ETF like VUG - This is a great “set it and forget it" ETF that you just add to monthly (VYM) VANGUARD High Dividend Yield - Dividend-paying stocks tend to perform better, as a group, than non-dividend stocks, and also generally do better during tough economic times. - For investors who want exposure to rock-solid dividend stocks, but don't want the guesswork and risk involved with choosing individual stocks - Invests in 401 stocks that pay higher-than-average dividend yields, and specifically excludes REITs - 1 year ROI = 12.36% - 5 year ROI= 73.34% ARK ETF Trust - The ARK ETF is an actively-managed fund that focuses on companies working in next-generation sectors, like cloud computing and Big Data. It has a nice mixture of recognizable names, as well as lesser-known speculative companies. - BitCoin Investment Trust is the top holding in ARK, and this fund is banking heavily on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. While that may seem like an unnecessarily heavy risk, I believe could possibly pay off handsomely. - 1 year ROI = 85.34% - Since Oct 2014 = 139% - Top 10 holdings: bitcoin investment trust, amazon, athena health, twitter, tesla, 2U inc, netflix, nvidia, google, mercadolibre. Bitcoin and the blockchain are the ultimate disruptors. Everything that we know about business and finance will change over the next several years. _____ Sign up for my FREE weekly stock picks! 😍 💌 http://bit.ly/WeeklyStockPicks _____ FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM 📷 😀 @whiteboardfinance _____ Best Investing Apps 📊💸 M1 FINANCE: Invest in partial shares of your favorite stocks 📈 http://bit.ly/M1FinanceApp QAPITAL: Automate your savings without trying 📌 http://bit.ly/QapitalApp COINBASE: Get $10 in free Bitcoin (when you fund $100) ⭐ http://bit.ly/CoinBaseCrypto1 _____ Premium Courses I’ve Created 👨🏻‍🔬 MJ Stock Investing Course (With Ryan Scribner) 🌲 http://bit.ly/MJStockCourse _____ Must Read Books! 📚🧠 The Best Assets vs. Liabilities Book 📘http://amzn.to/2DEWioH How to Get Rich Slowly 📗http://amzn.to/2D41y46 The Best Mindset & Self Development Book 📗http://amzn.to/2BUMPJa The Best Story on Personal Finance 📕 https://amzn.to/2KJKgRn No time to read?

8 Types of Investments You Should Know
Free Beginners Stock Investing Course -- http://bit.ly/2CgSOLH Subscribe For More Videos -- http://bit.ly/2BKP2u4 There are many different types of investments an individual can make, however, not all investments are created equally.  Investment number 1 is a high-interest savings account. This is one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. By placing your money in a high-interest savings account, you’re earning annual interest on your money. Now the reason I specifically say “high” interest savings accounts is because typical savings accounts offer little to no interest at all. A typical savings account usually offers around 0.10% while a high-interest account usually offers around 1.3%. Now 1.3% is by no means a high return, but the benefit here is security. You know that when you invest your money in a savings account, you’re guaranteed at least the amount you invested plus the interest earned each year. The second type of investment is a money market account. This is also one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. I’m not going to go into too much detail because money market accounts are just another type of high-interest savings account. Although you have access to your funds with a money market account, you typically have less access than with a savings account. With a money market account, the interest rates vary, however, this type of investment usually returns somewhere between 1% and 2%. If you choose a money market account, make sure there are no monthly fees. The third type of investment is a certificate of deposit which is more commonly referred to as a CD. This is also one of the safest ways to invest your money because there's no volatility. A CD is a promissory note from a bank that pays a fixed interest over a specified amount of time. A CD is very similar to a savings account, however, it’s a very illiquid investment, meaning it’s not easily converted to cash. With a CD, investors typically set a maturity date, usually between 1 month and 5 years, which means that the investor will have to pay a penalty fee if they withdraw the money early. The fourth type of investment is a bond. Although bonds are still one of the safest investments you can make, they are just a bit riskier than the previous three. A bond is, in essence, an I Owe You Note issued by the government (local, state, or federal) or corporations. When either a company or the government is looking to fund a new project, they may issue bonds to raise the money. There are a few components to bonds. The bonds face value is the amount of money that was borrowed. The coupon rate is the rate of interest on the face value. The maturity date is when the bonds face value will be paid back to the lender. The fifth type of investment is a mutual fund. A mutual fund is basically a collection of stocks. Mutual funds vary in risk depending on the type of fund, but for the most part, mutual funds are safer than just stocks. Mutual funds are a great option for investors with little cash to invest. Some funds have investment minimums, but others have no minimums. Mutual funds are safer because they are pre-diversified collections of investments. There are many different types of mutual funds such as technology funds, bond funds, real estate funds, energy funds, foreign funds, emerging market funds, and so on. Mutual funds are operated by a fund manager that chooses and maintains the portfolio. The sixth type of investment is an Exchange Traded Fund, also known as an ETF. ETFs are similar to mutual funds, however, they are a bit riskier and are traded on an exchange like stocks. Mutual funds can only be bought or sold at the end of the day at their Net Asset Value (NAV), whereas ETFs can be bought and sold at any point throughout the day. One advantage to ETFs over Mutual funds is that they are more tax advantages. ETFs are a more hands-on investment than mutual funds. The seventh type of investment is a stock which is riskier than ETFs because there is no diversification and it is a very hands-on investment. A stock is a share of ownership of a company. The eighth type of investment is real estate. Now, this type of investment requires a lot of capital, but is a very worthwhile investment. There are two main ways you can invest in real estate: Flipping properties and renting properties. So just to recap, the 8 investments mentioned in this video are some common investments along with their riskiness. If you're a beginning investor, I encourage you to look into each of these investments further to see where you may be comfortable investing your money. In the next video, I’m going to show you the easiest way you can invest your money. I’ll see you then.

The population is growing, commodities will recover and interest rates should go up alongside higher inflation. This will make the Australian currency stronger and give an additional return to foreign investors. On top of everything Australian stocks offer high dividends and a stable business environment. You can buy directly stocks on the Australian stock market, you can buy an Australian ETF, bonds, a currency ETF, but be careful of the Australian dividend withholding tax. Australia should be an essential part of a well balanced portfolio with international diversification.

Top 5 Mutual Funds to Buy in 2018
Free Resources: https://bit.ly/2wymZbJ My pick for the best mutual fund with a 1-year return is the American Funds New Perspective Fund® Class F-1 which boasts a 1-year return of 28.78%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol NPFFX. Now although future returns are all speculative, that is a phenomenal return for any short-term investor. Hypothetically that means that if you invest $2,500, which is the minimum to invest, today and sell out at the end of the year, you’ll have made $719.50. Now, this fund is of a moderate risk and has 319 holdings, the top 5 of which are Amazon, Facebook Inc. A, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd, Naspers Ltd Class N, and Microsoft Corporation. This fund is technically a world fund which is why you see such a diverse set of holdings. As mentioned earlier this fund is a 5-star fund and has no transaction fees. Alright, so my pick for the best 5-year fund is the Fidelity® 500 Index Fund — Institutional Premium Class which boasts a 5-year return of 15.78%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FXAIX.  This fund has no minimum so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $2,703.50 which I found using a custom Excel calculator that accounts for compound interest. Moving into my third pick which is for the mutual fund with the best 10-year return. The fund I pick for this category is the Fidelity® Nasdaq® Composite Index Fund which boasts a 10-year return of 11.09%. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FNCMX. Similar to the first fund, this fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 10 years, you’ll have made roughly $7,156.32 which I again found using a custom Excel calculator that accounts for compound interest. This fund is of a moderate risk and consists of 2,196 holdings, the top 5 of which are Apple Inc., Microsoft Corp, Facebook Inc. A, Amazon Inc., and ALPHABET INC CL C. So I think we’re starting to see a trend here between the top holdings of these funds. As our world becomes more tech-driven, leading companies such as apple an Microsoft will continue to grow. Alright, my fourth pick which is for the best foreign mutual fund is the Fidelity® International Enhanced Index Fund which boasts one year return of 27.59%, a five-year return of 9.35%, and a ten-year return of 2.3%. Because of its weak 10 year return, I would consider this a short to mid-year hold which would be around 2 to 5 years. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol FIENX. Like most Fidelity funds, this fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $1,406.93. This fund is of a moderate risk and consists of 264 holdings, the top 5 of which are, excuse my pronunciation, NOVARTIS AG (REG), NESTLE SA (REG), ROCHE HLDGS AG (GENUSSCHEINE), TOTAL SA (FRAN), and BAYER AG. So it's nice to see some different holdings than the last funds but I’m sure you saw some familiar names there like Bayer and Nestle. Now the benefit to holding a foreign fund is that it’s less correlated with the US stock market. That means that during a recession, your foreign holdings may fair better than your US holdings. Okay, so my fifth and final pick which is for the best balanced mutual fund is the T. Rowe Price Personal Strategy Growth Fund which has one year return of 21.91%, a five-year return of 11.60%, and a ten-year return of 7.06%. Although a 10-year return of 7.06% is still decent, I would also recommend this as a medium-term hold. You can find this fund with the ticker symbol TRSGX. This fund has a minimum of $2,500 so hypothetically if you invest $2,500 today and sell out in 5 years, you’ll have made roughly $1,827.74. This fund is of a lower risk and consists of Cash, convertibles, domestic bonds, preferred stock, foreign bonds, foreign stock, domestic stock, and others, whatever that means. Because this is a balanced fund, it’s already diversified which makes it a lot easier for the investor. The reason I recommend this fund is because it has a lengthy history of excellent performance and it’s already diversified which makes it a nice holding during a recession.   Thanks for watching and make sure to subscribe so that you don’t miss any future content.

How to Invest in ETFs
In my last video, I already decided which ETFs I will be investing in. But how do I go about actually purchasing them? Well, you need to choose a broker. I use an online, commission-free broker called SelfWealth who only have a flat $9.50 fee per trade. That’s a pretty good deal. I’ve already decided that I am investing in these four ETFs – 25% in each of VAS, VGS, VGAD, and VAE. Just say I have $100,000 in total to invest. There’s a couple of schools of thought here. I could buy them all on the same day in a lump-sum, $25000 in each. That would have the benefit of saving on brokerage – four trades for a total of $38. If the market were to go up, which on average it does, then it would be best for me to invest in this manner. However, what if unbeknownst to me, the market is actually at a peak now? (A real possibility based on recent events). Then I would be investing all my money into a falling market. So probably the better option in this case would be to put my money in over time, say $5000 every month – a process known as dollar-cost averaging. This assumes that the average investor, like myself, can’t time the market, so there’s no use trying. For me, I started with an initial investment in January of $5000 in each of my ETFs. The reason I picked $5000 is that that’s a fairly good trade-off with regard to brokerage. $9.50 of $5000 is only 0.19% – a fairly reasonable one-off fee. I wouldn’t recommend lower than $5000, but that’s up to you. Then, every month thereafter, I put in a one-off $5000 investment into my lowest value ETF. So in February, just say the ETFs have the following values, then I would put $5000 into VGAD. In March, I would put $5000 into VAS as it has the lowest value. I choose the ETF with the lowest overall value for two reasons. First, it keeps my portfolio reasonably well-balanced. If I keep putting money into say the highest performing ETF, then very quickly my 25% target allocation would go out the window. Secondly, buying the lowest price ETF will give the most bang for my buck, that is, I’ll be able to buy more units on average. So each month, I’m planning to invest $5000 into the lowest value fund until I’ve fully invested my $100,000. From that point onwards, I will invest $5000 whenever it becomes available. So maybe once every three or four months depending on how much I can save. Although mathematically speaking, a lump-sum investment may be the better option, Vanguard’s Robin Bowerman said it well in defence of dollar-cost averaging. “Dollar-cost averaging provides a means to resist any temptation to try to time the market. Attempts at market timing often result in following the investment herd by buying when prices are high while selling when prices are low. As humans we are not wired that way and behavioral economics research tells us that as investors we often 'misbehave' ... that is why dollar-cost averaging makes sense in tough/volatile markets. It keeps people in the game." Moneychimp.com also said it well, “If the market dips, people will be happy because dollar-cost averaging will be saving them money, and if the market goes up, people will be happy regardless.” So from a psychological perspective, dollar-cost-averaging makes sense. Now for today’s take-home message: 1. Choose a low-cost broker such as SelfWealth. 2. Invest regularly. Invest your money over time to make the most of dollar-cost averaging. That doesn’t mean you have to invest every week or month. Once a quarter is also a good option. 3. Don’t try to time the market. The majority of people get it wrong. And that leads to my final point: 4. Only buy, never sell! ETFs are for investment. If you want to trade frequently, become a day trader. We’re here to make money over the long-term. Sure, there will be some days where the markets go down and you’ll feel like you want to sell everything. But don’t! Keep hold of your ETFs and ultimately, you’ll reap the rewards.

Warren Buffett's Best Investment Advice: Buy Index Funds
http://www.LifeStyleTrading101.com Warren Buffett is perhaps the most successful and celebrated investor of the 20th century and his results have only been getting better as he ages. ★☆★ VIEW THE BLOG POST: ★☆★ http://www.lifestyletrading101.com/warren-buffetts-best-investment-advice-buy-index-funds/ =========================== Of course, that’s largely due to his ability to pick stocks that outperform the market. But during his lifetime, the stock market has actually gone up quite a bit, despite the dot com and financial crisis. Anyone who bought and hold would be doing quite well as well. You don’t necessarily need to pick the best stock winners. Simply getting exposed to the overall market in a diversified manner would have given you solid returns over time. In fact, that’s exactly what Warren Buffett recommends and is doing himself. On page 20 of The 2013 Berkshire Hathaway Annual Report to Shareholders (PDF), he talks about how he is allocating 90% of his estate for his heirs to be invested in the S&P500 index fund – and that’s what he recommends to the average investor. ====================== What This Means For You Warren Buffett’s favorite investing strategy can be essentially boiled to a few key takeaways: 1) Buy a low-cost index fund – either through ETFs such as SPY or VOO — or directly with Vanguard. 2) Buy in pieces over a period of time (dollar-cost-averaging) 3) Hold. In his annual report, Buffett specifically recommends the Vanguard S&P500 Index Fund. ★☆★ Part 2: Executing Buffett's Advice ★☆★ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STMg_6qpV4Y ★☆★ Subscribe on Youtube ★☆★ http://www.youtube.com/lifestyletrading101x Instagram ►http://www.instagram.com/lifestyletrading101

What is an ETF? How does an ETF Work? - Watch & Learn
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.

Vanguard’s Jack Bogle, Index Fund Pioneer, Dies Aged 89
The founder of The Vanguard Group, John Clifton "Jack" Bogle, died last week aged 89. He was a pioneer of the index fund which is something I use in my own investments. Although he wasn’t a big fan of ETFs, that is, Exchange Traded Funds, he said as long you treat ETFs as a long-term investment, and they are broad-based and not used for speculation, then they can be just as effective as any index fund. Most of my personal money is tied up in Vanguard ETFs and I am using them just as Jack recommended. Vanguard ETFs are low-cost, broad-based, and great for long-term investors. Thanks to Jack’s pioneering mentality, the average person now has access to a plethora of simple, low-cost investment options. His goal in life was not to become filthy rich, but to help others become richer as well. He proved that business leaders have the power to shrink the wealth divide. He used his leadership position at Vanguard to increase the wealth of millions of regular people. Although we look at index funds as an obvious investment choice nowadays, it wasn’t always that way. Back in 1976, when Bogle launched the very first index fund, the industry ridiculed it. They labelled it “Bogle’s folly”. But he pressed on and now the index fund is pretty much part of every investor’s portfolio. Personally, I wouldn’t invest any other way in the stock market. Investing in individual stocks is risky and most people fail. So why bother? Why not just invest in a broad-market index fund or ETF and let the market do the work? That was Jack’s idea and it was revolutionary. Trying to pick stocks and time the market is a sure way to lose lots of money. Even the best investors often get it wrong. To all my listeners, I would recommend following Jack’s advice. Invest in index funds, not just from your home country, but from around the world. As you’ve probably seen in my other videos, I invest in Asia, Australia, Europe, and the United States. Why invest in a single company when you can invest in the world’s best 1000 companies, all just by putting your money in one or two index funds or ETFs? The choice is obvious in my opinion. So I’d like to finish with some of my favourite Jack Bogle quotes. “The idea that a bell rings to signal when investors should get into or out of the market is simply not credible. After nearly 50 years in this business, I do not know of anybody who has done it successfully and consistently.” “The index fund is a sensible, serviceable method for obtaining the market's rate of return with absolutely no effort and minimal expense. Index funds eliminate the risks of individual stocks, market sectors and manager selection, leaving only stock market risk.” “Beating the market is a zero-sum game for investors. Money managers, as a group, must provide the market return... But that return comes only before their exorbitant fees, operating expenses, and portfolio turnover costs are deducted. The zero-sum game before costs becomes a loser’s game after costs.” “Don't look for the needle in the haystack. Just buy the haystack!” “If you have trouble imagining a 20% loss in the stock market, you shouldn't be in stocks.” “The grim irony of investing is that we investors as a group not only don't get what we pay for, we get precisely what we don't pay for.” “The miracle of compounding returns is overwhelmed by the tyranny of compounding costs.” “Investing is not nearly as difficult as it looks. Successful investing involves doing a few things right and avoiding serious mistakes.” And finally, “Time is your friend; impulse is your enemy.” Thanks Jack for all your wonderful contributions. You have provided a great service to this world. As he wrote in his memoirs, “I’ve usually used the phrase ‘stay the course’ as one of the great rules of investment success, but as I complete this memoir, ‘stay the course’ is also a splendid rule for fighting our way through the inevitable ups and downs of the short spans of our existence on this Earth, and for enjoying a productive and honourable life well lived.” Thank you Jack.

Gold ETF Holdings Reach a High of Over 2,000 Tonnes for the First Time in Three Years
(Kitco News) -- Global gold exchange traded funds (ETFs) holdings have increased by more than 500 tonnes since January, reaching a high of over 2,000 tonnes for the first time in three years, according to a report on Monday. 'Investor gold demand has been prompted by slow global growth, negative interest rates in Europe and Japan, and the unlikelihood of the Federal Reserve raising rates in the near future,' says Frank Holmes, chief executive officer of U.S. Global Investors.

Passive Investing: The Evidence the Fund Management Industry Would Prefer You Not to See
http://sensibleinvesting.tv -- the independent voice of passive investing A remarkable 54-minute film featuring some of the world's top economists and academics and demonstrating: * how the claims of active fund managers to be able to beat the market are largely a myth * how costs are the biggest drag on performance - and why active costs more * how passive investing offers the best experience for the vast majority of investors * the benefits of a diversified portfolio in guaranteeing consistent returns * why passive investing is better for your health * why active investing has held sway for so many years.... * ... but why things may be changing * and why passive is the rational, mathematically proven route to investing success. Investing for the future... It's an issue none of can afford to ignore. No one's job is safe these days... How would you cope if you lost yours? We're all living longer too... So are you saving enough to fund 25 years or more of retirement? Can you really afford to pay for your children or grandchildren to go to university - or help them onto the property ladder? And what about all those holidays you promised yourself? We entrust the vast bulk of our investments to fund managers. Here in the UK, according to Her Majesty's Treasury, the industry has more than four TRILLION pounds of investors' money under management. Fund managers invest people's savings wherever they see fit - mainly in equities, or shares in listed companies. They claim to be experts at making our making grow, using their expert knowledge to pick the shares that will outperform the market. But all too often the returns they produce are considerably lower than the average return of a benchmark index like the FTSE 100 - or the S&P 500 in the States. For veteran investment guru John Bogle, the problem is simple. Fund managers just aren't as smart as they like to think they are. As it means trading against the view of numerous market participants with superior information, buying or selling a security is effectively just a bet. So, whilst your fund manager might lead you to believe it's his knowledge or intelligence that enables you to beat the market, he's really no better than a gambler. So, you might be lucky enough to choose the right fund manager. But you could just as easily pick the wrong one. According to the financial services company Bestinvest, there are currently nearly £10 billion of UK investors' money languishing in what it calls dog funds - in other words, funds which have underperperformed their benchmark index for at least three consecutive years. Ultimately, of course, fund managers are businesses. They exist to make money for themselves. They want our business - even if it means persuading us to invest in a fund which they themselves wouldn't want to put their own money in. It's now time to look at what it actually costs us to invest. Fund managers are, of course, businesses. And, like all business, they have overheads. Running a big fund management company doesn't come cheap - esepcially when top managers earn around £2 million a year, including bonuses. And remember, it's you, the customer, who picks up the tab. Ultimately, though, fund managers need to make a profit. In fact they'e making around £10 billion from us every year - and that's regardless of whether or not they manage to produce a profit for us. Part of the challenge is working out exactly what we are being charged. Investors typically use something called the annual Total Expense Ratio, or TER, to compare the cost of investing in different funds. But, the TER excludes dealing commission, stamp duty and other turnover costs that can add considerably to the expense of investing over time. So, apart from those hidden charges, what else are we having to pay? More importantly, what sort of impact do charges have on the value of our investments? And the bad news doesn't stop there. Despite a marked increase in competition, management charges in the UK have been steadily rising over the last ten years. There are some encouraging signs for consumers. The FSA's Retail Distribution Review will require fund managers to be fairer and more transparent when it comes to charges. In the meantime, investors should be on their guard.

Stefan started from nothing, and has been able to build himself up to a millionaire, at 30 years old. Are you ready to invest in your future?

Active Money Management with ETFs - Steve Savant’s Money- Part 4 of 5
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. Steve Savant’s Money, the Name of the Game is an hour-long financial talk show for consumers distributed online in 5 ten-minute video press releases Monday through Friday to 280 media outlets, social media networks and industry portals.

How to build an investment portfolio? | Vanguard adviser and client education centre
When you’re investing it’s important to focus on factors within your control. You can’t control the ups and downs of investment markets. But you can control how you invest your money. You should start by developing an investment plan to give yourself the best chance of success. A financial adviser can help you answer some key questions. • Why are you investing? • How long are you investing for? • Are your circumstances likely to change in the future? • How much investment risk are you prepared to take on? Once you’ve completed your investment plan you need to get your asset allocation right. How you allocate your money to each asset class is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Then you need to decide how to invest your money. Should you invest within the tax-effective framework of superannuation or outside super with more control and access to your money? Should you invest directly in the markets or access a wider range of investments through a professionally managed fund. If you’re investing in a managed fund you need to decide how you’d like your money to be managed. A professional financial adviser can help you decide the right investment structure and asset allocation based on your individual needs. And of course, markets move up and down over time. This can move your portfolio away from your strategic asset allocation and change your risk/return profile. So you may need to rebalance your portfolio regularly to match your target asset allocation. And it’s not only investment markets that change. You’ll experience life changes as well. So when you make big decisions like starting a family, buying a new home or starting a new job, you’ll need to review your investment portfolio to make sure it still meets your needs. When you invest with Vanguard, you have more than 40 years of investing experience behind you. So no matter how you go about building your investment portfolio, you can feel confident that Vanguard funds are built on a rigorous investment philosophy that stands the test of time.

Index funds investing | Vanguard adviser and client education centre
When it comes to investing it can be difficult to keep on outperforming year after year, even for experienced fund managers. Instead of trying to beat the market, index fund managers take a different approach. They track the market by investing in all or a sample of the index—a group of securities representing a broad investment market. Index fund managers buy securities in the same weight as the index. By closely tracking market returns, indexing offers investors a number of potential benefits. You can easily diversify your portfolio across industries, asset classes and securities, in Australia and overseas. This is important because the returns from different investments can vary dramatically from year to year. So with a broad range of assets in your portfolio, returns from better performing assets can help offset those not performing so well. This reduces the risk that your portfolio suffers from a downturn in a particular industry, region or asset class. Index funds usually have lower costs than active funds due to their lower trading volume and because they generally follow a repeatable investment process rather than relying on individual stock analysis and selection. And they tend to make fewer trades, so they offer potential tax efficiency from a lower turnover that minimises capital gains. You could allocate 100% of your portfolio to indexing. Or you could choose a core-satellite approach with low-cost index funds as the core surrounded by carefully chosen active satellites. Whatever mix of investment styles suits your needs, when you invest with Vanguard you have more than 40 years of investing experience behind you. So you can feel confident that Vanguard investments are built on a rigorous investment philosophy that stands the test of time.

Copy Book Definition (From Wikipedia) A mutual fund is a professionally managed investment fund that pools money from many investors to purchase securities. These investors may be retail or institutional in nature. Mutual funds have advantages and disadvantages compared to direct investing in individual securities. The primary advantages of mutual funds are that they provide economies of scale, a higher level of diversification, they provide liquidity, and they are managed by professional investors. On the negative side, investors in a mutual fund must pay various fees and expenses. Primary structures of mutual funds include open-end funds, unit investment trusts, and closed-end funds. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are open-end funds or unit investment trusts that trade on an exchange. Mutual funds are also classified by their principal investments as money market funds, bond or fixed income funds, stock or equity funds, hybrid funds or other. Funds may also be categorized as index funds, which are passively managed funds that match the performance of an index, or actively managed funds. Hedge funds are not mutual funds; hedge funds cannot be sold to the general public and are subject to different government regulations. Mutual funds today (Data from Wikipedia) At the end of 2016, mutual fund assets worldwide were $40.4 trillion, according to the Investment Company Institute. The countries with the largest mutual fund industries are: United States: $18.9 trillion Luxembourg: $3.9 trillion Ireland: $2.2 trillion Germany: $1.9 trillion France: $1.9 trillion Australia: $1.6 trillion United Kingdom: $1.5 trillion Japan: $1.5 trillion China: $1.3 trillion Brazil: $1.1 trillion Keywords :- mutual funds, mutual funds explained, mutual funds vs etf, mutual funds for beginners, mutual funds vs index funds, mutual funds for dummies, mutual funds dave ramsey, mutual funds vs stocks, mutual funds india 2018, mutual funds 101, mutual funds definition, mutual funds to invest in, mutual funds vs etf, mutual funds companies, mutual funds vs stocks, mutual funds examples, mutual funds calculator, mutual funds vs index funds, mutual funds pros and cons, how mutual funds work, how mutual funds make your money grow, how mutual funds returns are calculated, how mutual funds work in hindi, how mutual funds make money, how mutual funds grow, how mutual funds earn money, how mutual funds work in india, how mutual funds compound interest, how to mutual funds investment, how to mutual funds work, how to invest in mutual funds online, how to invest in paytm mutual funds, how to select mutual funds in india, how to sell mutual funds, how to calculate sip returns in mutual funds, how to buy sip mutual funds online, why mutual funds are bad, why mutual funds are better than stocks, why mutual funds are going down, why mutual funds are a bad investment, why mutual funds are subject to market risk, why mutual funds are crashing, what mutual funds to invest in, what mutual funds does dave ramsey recommend, what mutual funds to buy, what mutual funds does dave ramsey invest in, what mutual funds does dave ramsey have, what mutual funds to buy now, what mutual funds can i buy through td ameritrade, what mutual funds does td ameritrade offer, what mutual funds in hindi, where to invest in mutual funds, where to buy mutual funds, where to invest in mutual funds 2018, where to find mutual funds, can mutual funds make you rich.

Things like GICs, Stocks, and Mutual Funds. We’ve also discussed some rules to keep in mind as you approach investing. As we mentioned before, our favourite investment option is one that is low risk, but provides medium to high rewards. Remember Index funds? They are a type of mutual fund that imitates certain stock indexes, hence the name. In Canada we have one main stock exchange, which is the Toronto Stock Exchange, or TSX. You can go on Wikipedia right now and look at a list of stocks that are traded on that exchange. You can’t actually buy the TSX, but some banks have created a mutual fund that is very close to holding all of the stocks listed within the TSX. There are mutual funds that mimic other exchanges like S&P500 and the NASDAQ. Because index funds represent the stock exchange, and the stock exchange’s composition doesn’t change much, index funds are what’s known as “passively traded”. On the other hand, you have mutual fund managers who are actively buying and trading stocks to get better returns. They are trying to “beat the market”. These mutual funds are “actively traded”. So with passively traded funds, the fees associated with buying index funds are much lower, usually less than 1% of total assets. Actively traded mutual funds hover around the 2% mark. Wait, 1%, 2%, of what? These fees are asset-based, meaning it’s a percentage of what you have invested. This means that if you have $10,000 invested in an index fund, you are paying $100 a year in fees. Compare that with paying $200 a year on a 2% fee mutual fund. Index funds are recommended by most billionaire investors such as Warren Buffet because through statistical data, they perform better than most mutual funds offered to you by your financial advisor, yet charge significantly less management fees. Here’s a fun fact: 96% of all professionally managed mutual funds don’t beat the stock index. That means you have a 4% chance to beat the market when you choose a mutual fund offered to you by a financial advisor. Let’s imagine you went to the casino to play blackjack. The goal of blackjack is to beat the dealer’s hand, to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. If you get two face cards right off the bat, you have 20 points, which is a great hand. However, if the idiot inside you says “hit me”, in hopes of getting an ace, you only have an 8% chance of getting one. So, think about it, you are two times more likely to get an ace in blackjack then you are to outperform an index with a mutual fund. Why would you consider putting something so important as your life savings into something with such a low chance of success? We’re not saying you’ll lose your money in mutual funds, but the index, and more specifically index funds, have been proven to perform substantially better in the long run, in both market booms and crashes. So why do banks promote mutual funds so much? Well remember that you’re paying a really high fee to hold these mutual funds, and banks are a business too. Your financial advisor becomes a salesperson when they recommend funds for you because they are being told by their manager and company to promote certain funds. So be sure to do your research, and in later videos we’ll reveal how you can ask the right questions to your financial advisor. Along with stock index funds, there are bond index funds as well. These follow the same concept in that the fund will have as many different types of bonds in it as possible.
