Is Money Flowing To Low-Fee Funds?

A recent study from Vanguard looked at the relationship between mutual fund/ETF expense ratios and net cash flows. The goal was to see if investors are making choices based on the costs of the investment vehicles.

The results are clear: investors are voting with their feet, and moving towards lower fee options.

In this week’s Science of Investing, Cameron discusses this study with guest-host John Budden, and looks at this issue from a Canadian perspective.

Markets Are Volatile, But Risk Tolerances Are Not

In building your portfolio, you likely spent some time determining what your risk tolerance is. How much short-term loss could you tolerate in seeking long-term gains? Does our risk tolerance change based on recent market fluctuations?

But a recent study looked at this question, and found some interesting answers that may surprise you. Have a listen to this week’s Science of Investing discussion with host Jason McIntyre.
