Utility ETFs


Most of these ETFs invest in the stocks of companies in the utilities sector. The ETFs in this category is ideal for investors looking to veer away from volatility in the equity markets while gaining exposure to income-producing stocks. The risk does come in if interest rates rise to a level where stocks get competition from other income-generating options such as high-yield CDs.
