Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) provide a different way to trade stock. But it’s not simply another way. ETFs open themselves to multiple strategies.

First of all, Doug discusses the fact that ETF tend to mirror a benchmark. But why not aim to outperform the benchmark?

Then, the discussion extends to discuss some tax saving strategies you could implement using ETFs. (Remember, I never give specific tax advise, but just discuss investment strategies)
