Financial Information, Money Matters: Mutual Funds & ETFs


Close to 10,000 mutual funds and exchange-traded funds compete for investors’ attention, and a lot of confusion often results. In the course of this workshop we will help you narrow down the choices, avoid the hype and understand how mutual funds and ETFs are similar and what the important differences are; what kinds of investments funds can make; costs of fund investing; actively managed vs. indexing philosophies. You’ll come away with a better sense of the investing landscape and deeper understanding of what is important and what isn’t.
