The role of exchange-traded funds in your plan
These are popular because investors can trade them at any point during the market day. Also, these funds focus on emerging markets, stock sectors or specific industries.
Are exchange-traded funds for you?

ETFs only incur capital gains when you sell the fund.
Why United Wealth Management
We believe in true service, so we don’t just share with you our knowledge—we work alongside you.
ETFs trade like stocks, are subject to investment risk, fluctuate in market value, and may trade at prices above or below the ETF's net asset value (NAV). Upon redemption, the value of fund shares may be worth more or less than their original cost. ETFs carry additional risks such as not being diversified, possible trading halts, and index tracking errors.
