DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - July 12, 2016) - Exchange-traded funds, often referred to as ETFs, are today's fastest growing financial instruments that offer access to various investments in a single trade, with minimal risks and highest resistance to economic volatilities. As investment vehicles, ETFs, although very similar to stocks and mutual funds, have a number of competitive advantages over the latter, such as lower price and higher liquidity. While it certainly makes exchange-traded funds an attractive marketable security for capital ventures, understanding which ETF will best suit your business needs before making investment decisions is imperative. Reda Bedjaoui, a sought-after expert investor and CEO of Redbed Investments, known for his breadth and depth of knowledge in international trading and governance, gives the best insights into the market of tradable financial assets.
ETFs, known as financial assets with high liquidity that can easily be converted to cash, trade like stocks on stock exchanges, such as NASDAQ, NYSE, Japan Exchange Group, among many others. However, unlike stocks, which focus on one company, an ETF tracks an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of securities. Similar to mutual funds, one ETF can invest in hundreds and sometimes even thousands of stocks or bonds in a single fund. However, with ETFs, brokers can trade on the major stock exchanges anytime during the trading day, while mutual fund shares, instead, are priced only at the end of the day after the markets close. Despite its many unique advantages, investing in ETFs may at times involve risks. Just like with any investment product, Reda Bedjaoui advises to be mindful of an unavoidable cost when trading ETFs known as the bid-ask spread. Exchange-traded funds are not a "one size fits all" solution and, therefore, may not be appropriate for your individual situation.
In choosing the best ETF to trade, Reda Bedjaoui recommends investors to keep in mind the following tips and guidelines. A number one imperative is to maintain a well-diversified portfolio of investments, with mix of various asset categories that tend to go up and down at different times. Smart trading would involve investing in both large cap (international) and small cap (local) ETFs instead of holding four different ETFs that all invest in one big cap. While it may seem that the more expensive the ETF the better, in reality trading experts advise against overpaying, especially given that there is a plephora of economical ETFs that are both cost-effective and smart investments. Not only ETFs are growing in popularity among individual investors, they also benefit an increasing number of institutional investors. Studies show 31% of institutional funds and one-third of asset managers favor ETFs as a tool of managing and improving the liquidity of their portfolio. The international investment expert believes that understanding differences and similarities between the various marketable securities will help novice investors to turn uncertainties that exist in the market for tradeable assets into new business opportunities.
