The headlining domain name and website is www.ETF.com. ETF is the common abbreviation for Exchange-Traded Funds, also known as exchange-traded products, which hold assets such as stocks, commodities or bonds. ETFs trade ‘parallel-to-price’ of the net-asset value of its underlying assets. Many ETFs track indexes and are attractive to millions of investors due to their low expense ratios, increased tax efficiency and ease of liquidity, similar to stocks.
“The global valuation of the ETF market is in the trillions of dollars. More and more investors are turning to exchange-traded funds and exchange-traded financial instruments to meet their investment needs,” says Rob Monster, Chairman and CEO of Epik.com. “Many financial industry leaders like Blackrock, State Street, iShares, Schwab, Merrill Lynch, Invesco, Janus, Fidelity, Pimco, World Gold Trust, etc. could significantly strengthen their market share by controlling this Internet asset. In addition, its rankings on the first page of all three major search engines for the term ‘ETF’, positions the auction winner to steal visitors from ProShares.com, Morningstar.com and Vanguard,” said Mr. Monster.
Some of the more popular ETFs by trading volume include (NYSE:SPY), (NYSE:XLF), (NASDAQ:QQQQ), (NYSE:EEM), (NYSE:IWM), (NYSE:FAZ), (NYSE:FAS), (NYSE:SDS), (NYSE:FXI), (NYSE:EFA), (NYSE:UNG), (NYSE:SSO), (NYSE:XLE) and more. Exchange-Traded Funds are organized and marketed under such well-known brands as SPDRS, iShares, DIAMONDs, HOLDRs, Qubes, etc. Investment Firm Schwab recently announced demand for their exchange-traded funds had expanded by 38% among investors in the past year.
“With over 50% of the NYSE exchange volume in ETFs, this website is poised to be the go-to informational resource for both serious ETF traders and investors, as well as those new to these types of investment vehicles looking for advice and guidance,” says Bob Savage, CEO at Track.com, a premium financial research website. “Speaking as both an ETF investor and someone who provides ETF investment advice, the market is long-overdue for a singular point-of-reference when it comes to quality content about the ETF market,” says Savage.
