Learn the ABCs of ETFs - ETF - Strategy - IVV

A pretty useful (and easy to read) article on ETFs, definitely worth reading for introductory students!

Learn the ABCs of ETFs - ETF - Strategy - IVV:
"Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, are index funds that trade like stocks on major stock exchanges. They were introduced to U.S. markets in 1994 and now have a market value of $150 billion. Although that's still a relatively small number compared with the $7.5 trillion held in open-end mutual funds, ETFs are experiencing explosive growth and are now commonly found in the portfolios of institutional and retail investors alike."
