ETFs simply offer a smarter, safer and more tax efficient vehicle for investors.

Forbes has always been a pioneer in its coverage of smart sound investments for individual investors. Long before Morningstar ever existed, Forbes Magazine with its Mutual Fund Honor Roll began rating funds in the 1950s when the industry was in its infancy. Today, the Era of ETFs is just beginning and Forbes has partnered with award winning fund and ETF expert James Lowell III, to bring you The Forbes ETF Advisor.

Why Exchange Traded Funds?

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) are baskets of stocks in a variety of broad market, sector or capitalization categories, similar to mutual funds.

But here is where ETFs and Mutual Funds differ:

ETFs are more cost-effective because of lower operating and transaction costs.
ETFs are more liquid and flexible than funds. Like stocks they can be traded anytime during the market day.
ETFs are more tax-efficient because they typically have very low distribution rates.
ETFs often have better performance than index funds because they are more efficient.
ETFs offer investors a more liquid and efficient way to access hot overseas markets like Brazil, Russia,India and China.

The Forbes ETF Advisor is designed to maximize investor profits and minimize risk using ETF portfolios.

Edited by mutual fund, sector trading and ETF expert Jim Lowell, The Forbes ETF Advisor offers investors a comprehensive guide to the rapidly expanding universe of exchange traded funds. In monthly issues and with weekly hotline alerts investors will profit from timely advice revealing which market leading ETFs are Buys and which laggards are Sells.

Global Growth,
and Growth and Income.

Each monthly issue will also shine a spotlight on one ETF Jim is currently recommending as well as detailed analysis of an entire group of ETFs like international or biotech funds.

And for those still climbing the ETF learning curve, The Forbes ETF Advisor also contains a section entitled ETF University. All this plus Jim Lowell s rankings found in his ETF data tables and weekly email and telephone hotlines.
