Listen to Karen Schenone, CFA, Vice President from BlackRock/iShares in this recorded webinar as investors received an overview of recent developments in the bond market, including the outlook for rising rates. They learned how to use bond ETFs in their portfolios to help generate income and to potentially protect the value of bond portfolios when rates rise.
ETFs are more tax efficient compared to some traditional mutual funds. Generally, holding an ETF in a taxable account will generate less tax liabilities than if you held a similarly structured mutual fund in the same account.
Lots of people invest in mutual funds and exchange traded funds, or ETFs for short and, before investing, many of them probably asked themselves – “Which one should I invest in?” “What’s the best choice for my investing needs?”
Free commission offer applies to online purchases of select iShares ETFs in a Fidelity account. Fidelity accounts may require minimum balances. The sale of ETFs is subject to an activity assessment fee (from $0.01 to $0.03 per $1,000 of principal). iShares ETFs are subject to a short-term trading fee by Fidelity if held less than 30 days.
ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investments. ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETF shares are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their NAV, and are not individually redeemed from the fund.
For iShares ETFs, Fidelity receives compensation from the ETF sponsor and/or its affiliates in connection with an exclusive, long-term marketing program that includes promotion of iShares ETFs and inclusion of iShares funds in certain FBS platforms and investment programs. Additional information about the sources, amounts, and terms of compensation is described in the ETF’s prospectus and related documents. Fidelity may add or waive commissions on ETFs without prior notice. BlackRock and iShares are registered trademarks of BlackRock, Inc. and its affiliates.
