This afternoon (Tuesday, August 14) I will be participating in a webinar called “ETFs in Portfolio Management and Construction,” moderated by Yves Rebetez of ETF Insight. I’ll be joined by two industry professionals who are much smarter and better dressed than I am: Alfred Lee, Vice President and Investment Strategist for BMO ETFs, and Tyler Mordy, Director of Research, HAHN Investment Stewards.
We’ll be discussing the various ways that ETFs can be used to build diversified portfolios. I’m going to cover the basics using the Complete Couch Potato as an example. This portfolio provides extremely broad diversification with just six ETFs, all for an annual fee of 0.29%. The other panelists will consider some more advanced strategies, including adding alternative asset classes to traditional stock-bond portfolios.
I welcome you to join us at 4:15 pm EST. For login information and links, visit ETF Insight.
