Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETFs are composed of a diverse array of securities, such as stocks and bonds and commodities based on a specific investment objective.

PNC Investments offers access to more than 500 ETF product options from some of the top providers in the industry.

Features and Benefits

  • Wide variety of available funds to accommodate your investment preferences
  • Designed to track market indexes potentially made up of thousands of securities – allowing you to achieve broad diversification and exposure to an entire asset class, country, region or sector through a single investment
  • International and sector-focused ETFs may be used to add a specific focus to your investment activities
  • Most publish their holdings on a daily basis, allowing for greater transparency
  • Since ETFs strive to reflect (not outperform) market indexes, portfolio turnover is generally lower than that of actively managed mutual funds
  • You are less likely to be subject to large capital gains exposures (and the associated tax consequences) generated by frequent buying or selling within actively managed funds; consult your tax advisor for more information
