All-time highs for major stock benchmarks, tight credit spreads and low volatility signal serenity ahead. However, in 2020 the margin for error — and opportunity — will likely be as small as it’s been in a long time.

In the upcoming webcast, Low-Cost ETFs: Strategies for Efficient Broad Market Exposure, Vito Sciaraffia, Chief Investment Officer, Innealta Capital; Mike Dickson, Head of Portfolio Management, Horizon Investments; and Robert Forsyth III, Head of SPDR Americas Client Enablement Group, State Street Global Advisors, will look at market trends, what to look out for in 2020 and how you can construct your portfolio with low-cost strategies that help financial advisors gain efficient broad market exposure.

As more investors look to invest, many have become disillusioned with costly active fund strategies, opting to funnel more money into low-cost, passive index-based ETFs.

“A strong flexible portfolio begins with the core. It provides a stable foundation to pursue specific investment goals—from managing risk and generating income to growing capital through diversification,” according to State Street Global Advisors.

“But core investing shouldn’t be costly. Instead, investors should have confidence that they aren’t overpaying for returns in the largest part of their portfolio.”
