Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have attained prominence due to their transparency, liquidity, low management fees, tax efficiency and effectiveness in replicating the performance of a given index or sector. More recently, no-transaction-fee (NTF) ETFs have come into the spotlight providing greater cost efficiency.
Pershing provides you with FundVest® ETF as one of the financial industry's largest no-transaction-fee (NTF) ETF platforms with funds spanning a range of strategies and asset classes.
Key benefits include:

Please note that ETFs are subject to market fluctuation and the risks of their underlying investment. ETFs and even no-transaction-fee ETFs are subject to management fees and other expenses. Unlike mutual funds, ETFs are bought and sold at market price, which may be higher or lower than their net asset value (NAV), and are not individually redeemed from the fund.
Exchange-traded products (ETPs) are subject to market volatility and the risks of their underlying securities, which may include the risks associated with investing in smaller companies, foreign securities, commodities and fixed income investments. Foreign securities are subject to interest rate, currency exchange rate, economic and political risks, all of which are magnified in emerging markets. ETPs that target a small universe of securities, such as a specific region or market sector, are generally subject to greater market volatility, as well as to the specific risks associated with that sector, region, or other focus. ETPs that use derivatives, leverage or complex investment strategies are subject to additional risks. The return of an index ETP is usually different from that of the index it tracks because of fees, expenses, and tracking error. An ETP may trade at a premium or discount to its NAV (or indicative value in the case of exchange-traded notes). The degree of liquidity can vary significantly from one ETP to another and losses may be magnified if no liquid market exists for the ETP’s shares when attempting to sell them. Each ETP has a unique risk profile, detailed in its prospectus, offering circular or similar material, which should be considered carefully when making investment decisions.
