Here is a link to our podcast on Taylor Schulte’s “Stay Wealthy” show.
Without question, you have heard of Exchange Traded Funds, also commonly referred to as ETFs.
It’s a complex topic so I brought in the best person I know to help us break it down, in plain English. Ryan Kirlin is the Head of Capital Markets for Alpha Architect. He’s also a national-caliber rowing athlete and his claim to fame is having been tested at a resting heart rate of 38 while on the U.S. team for rowing. It was the second-lowest resting heart rate recorded by the US team doctors in 40 years!
Today, with Ryan’s help, we’ll dig into:
1.) What exactly an ETF is
2.) How ETFs are different from a mutual fund
3.) The tax benefits of an ETF versus a mutual fund
4.) Why their popularity won’t be slowing down any time soon
