ETFs Strike a Cord with Investors | ETF Trends

Charles Schwab’s Heather Fischer, Vice President of ETF Platform Management, and Tony Davidow, Alternative Beta and Asset Allocation Strategist, joined Tom Lydon, ETF Trends Publisher, at the Inside ETFs conference to go over exchange traded fund investors’ behavior and investment habits.

For instance, more Schwab clients have gravitated toward commission-free ETF options on Schwab’s ETF OneSource platform, Fischer said.

As Charles Schwab’s ETF OneSource program celebrates its three-year anniversary, some fund sponsors have come together to create an interactive microsite to help provide analysis and their outlook for some of the products listed on OneSource.
