Finance companies engage in the management and investment of money to most efficiently allocate capital. These companies have a variety of different structures, such as consumer-facing retail banks, insurance companies and closed-ended funds. The dividend yields within this sector are much higher than the wider market.

If you’re looking to invest in financial stocks, you may also be interested in financial exchange-traded funds (ETFs). These funds offer a diversified basket of financial stock holdings. They are investment structures that are traded on stock exchanges, similar to equities. They’re also similar to mutual funds in that they hold securities of many companies.

3 Reasons to Invest in Financials ETFs:

  • ETFs offer lower fees when compared to other investment funds and vehicles, such as mutual funds.
  • They provide diversification in the basket of financial stock holdings in the ETF, which lowers portfolio market risk.
  • It’s easy to gain exposure to many financial stocks with just one vehicle (ETF).

Whereas, if you’re interested in investing in individual financial stocks, check out the tables below.
