ETFs are investment portfolios designed to follow the performance of specific indexes, such as the S&P 500, MSCI World or the NASDAQ Composite Index. Like stocks and bonds, ETFs are traded on the exchanges, and shares in the funds can be purchased or sold during trading hours.
When you invest in stocks, you buy ownership shares in a specific company. This ownership share may provide dividends and capital gains.
Bonds, or fixed income securities, represent debt instruments issued by local, regional state and national governments, as well as corporations and government agencies. They generally offer a higher level of stability and can provide a steady stream of income.
Annuities are contracts with insurance companies designed to meet retirement and other long-range goals. Investors make lump-sum payments or a series of payments, and receive periodic payments from the insurance company in return.
