What are some differences between Exchange-Traded Funds and Index Mutual Funds?

There are many factors to consider when comparing an exchange-traded fund (ETF) and an index mutual fund. An ETF is a marketable security that tracks an index, like an index fund. A Mutual Fund is an investment company that pools money from shareholders and invests in a variety of securities, including stocks, bonds and money market funds. A main difference between an ETF and an index mutual fund is an ETF trades continuously while the market is open, while the index mutual fund trades one time a day at market close.

It is key to remember that you will never receive an email or a phone call, from the IRS or your bank, asking for your social security number or account number. Always assume this is a fraudulent call or email and do not give out any sensitive information.
