NEW YORK – It doesn’t matter what kind of investment strategy you follow – exchange traded funds can always help financial advisers lower their investment costs.

That was the consensus among a panel of advisers last week in New York at the Exchange-Traded Funds Summit. The event was sponsored by Financial Research Associates LLC of Santa Cruz, Calif.

Advisers who follow a tactical strategy are switching to ETFs from mutual funds because they can trade in and out of ETFs without having to worry about factors such as redemption fees, said Tom Lydon, president of Global Trends Investments of Newport Beach, Calif.
