Diversify with Mutual Funds and ETFs

Even with the best advice and knowledge, investing is difficult, and successfully researching and selecting stocks is complex and time-consuming.

By choosing a mutual fund, comprised of potentially hundreds — even thousands — of stocks, you turn over the responsibility for maintaining a diversified portfolio to skilled professional managers.

ETFs, or exchange traded funds, are considered by many to be the best new market innovation in years. Like mutual funds, ETFs hold multiple stocks, avoiding the risks associated with an individual company. ETFs have the added advantage of being bought or sold easily throughout the day like any listed stock.

A primary distinction is that most mutual funds are "active" — which means they are managed by investment experts who select the stocks that make up the portfolio. Most ETFs, on the other hand, are "passive" — which means they invest in a specific group of stocks whose performance tries to mirror an underlying benchmark or index.
