ETFs and fixed income: A strong and versatile combination

20 September 2019 | Topical insights



ETFs are proving popular with professional investors. There are many reasons why: they are easy to use; offer instant diversification; have low trading costs; and are highly liquid.

To find out more about the trends in ETF investing, Vanguard carried out a survey of over 400 European institutional and professional ETF buyers. The research revealed some interesting preferences among investors when it comes to fixed income ETFs.


Important risk information:

The value of investments, and the income from them, may fall or rise and investors may get back less than they invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

ETF shares can be bought or sold only through a broker. Investing in ETFs entails stockbroker commission and a bid- offer spread which should be considered fully before investing.
