As the ETF industry grows and matures, investors are gravitating toward specific areas of interest and targeted investment strategies "I think what we are already seeing - costs matter. We continue to see that," Susan Thompson, Head of SPDR Americans Distribution for State Street Global Investors, said at Inside ETFs. For example, State Street Global Advisors has a line of dirt-cheap ETFs to provide exposure to a range of core equity and fixed-income asset classes, including: SPDR Portfolio Total Stock Market ETF (NYSEArca: SPTM) 0.03% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Large Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPLG) 0.03% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Mid Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPMD) 0.05% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Small Cap ETF (NYSEArca: SPSM) 0.05% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500® Growth ETF (NYSEArca: SPYG) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Value ETF (NYSEArca: SPYV) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 High Dividend ETF (NYSEArca: SPYD) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio World ex-US ETF (NYSEArca: SPDW) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Emerging Markets ETF (NYSEArca: SPEM) 0.11% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Aggregate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPAB) 0.04% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Long Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPLB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Intermediate Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPIB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Short Term Corporate Bond ETF (NYSEArca: SPSB) 0.07% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Long Term Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: SPTL) 0.06% expense ratio SPDR Portfolio Short Term Treasury ETF (NYSEArca: SPTS) 0.06% expense ratio 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.

Investment bubbles and speculative manias have existed for as long as humans have been involved in markets. Is it possible for investors to identify emerging bubbles and then profit from their inflation? Likewise, can investors avoid the bursting of these bubbles, and the extreme volatility and losses found in their aftermath to survive to invest another day? Over 70 years ago, Benjamin Graham and David Dodd proposed valuing stocks with earnings smoothed across multiple years. Robert Shiller later popularized this method with his version of the cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings (CAPE) ratio in the late 1990s and correctly issued a timely warning of poor stock returns to follow in the coming years. We apply this valuation metric across more than 40 foreign markets and find it both practical and useful. Indeed, we witness even greater examples of bubbles and busts abroad than in the United States. We then create a trading system to build global stock portfolios, and find significant outperformance by selecting markets based on relative and absolute valuation. Meb will also speak about 13-f research, and "hacking the hedge funds". Mr. Faber is a co-founder and the Chief Investment Officer of Cambria Investment Management.

(Transcript is below) Americans who invest in mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are served by a large, thriving marketplace. In the November 10, 2017, edition of Focus on Funds, ICI Senior Director for Industry and Financial Analysis Sean Collins discusses how investors and financial advisers are using a wide range of active and index funds to meet their savings needs. For more information, visit https://www.ici.org/research/industry_research ------------------------------------------------- Stephanie Ortbals-Tibbs, ICI director, media relations: The mutual fund and ETF industry continues to undergo rapid change. Recently, I talked with Sean Collins about what the trend lines tell us about where money is going, and just how active and passive management are working together. Sean Collins, ICI senior director of industry and financial analysis: There is lots of choice out there for investors. We have over 10,000 mutual funds and exchange-traded funds [ETFs] in combination. There are about 7,000 actively managed mutual funds, 450 index mutual funds, 1,800 exchange-traded funds—there is a wide range of choices within each of those categories. Ortbals-Tibbs: Sean, a lot of people look at the data and the trend lines going on in the market and they say that active management is on its way out, and passive is going to continue to take over. What do you see in the data? Collins: No, not at all. Active management is going to be with us always. What we’re seeing now is an increase in the demand for index mutual funds and index ETFs. That doesn’t mean that there is not active management—there is. What’s going on is that there is a migration of active management from inside of funds to outside of funds. So, for example, an adviser might help you pick a bundle of ETFs that are passively managed, give you an initial asset allocation—that’s active management, because you’re making choices about what you’re going to do—and then the financial adviser would work with you, so that over time, perhaps you rebalance your allocations in each one of those ETFs according to changing market circumstances, according to changing personal circumstances. Like, you could be getting older, and you want to put more money into fixed-income as you grow older, generally. So all of those things are active management—it’s just occurring outside of the fund, as opposed to inside the fund. Ortbals-Tibbs: Sean, the other thing people may not realize is that passive management is growing in particular categories at a rapid clip, but there are others where it still seems that active is really where investors are gravitating more. Collins: Most of the passive management to date has been primarily in equity, and primarily in US domestic equity in particular. Areas like world equity and bond funds—we still see most of the growth in actively managed funds. Now to be sure, there is growth in ETFs and bond index funds that invest in those categories, but still, predominantly, those would be actively managed areas. Ortbals-Tibbs: So when investors are looking at their fund choices, they really want to think broadly. Collins: Absolutely. You want to pick a suite of funds that match your characteristics, perhaps with the help of a financial adviser, perhaps changing those suites or mix over time. But you want to look across the range of funds so that you get a beta that sort of fits your circumstances, but also, you don’t want to miss funds because you don’t want to leave any alpha on the table. So it’s a good idea, probably, to look across a range of funds.

What is the best way of stopping people getting into debt? Capping credit cards? Identifying vulnerable people? More robust legislation? Teaching financial literacy at schools? In this final part of Talkabout, our panellists look at ways of making Singaporeans more financially responsible. They all agree that a financial literate population would significantly reduce the problem. The government and banks in Singapore are stepping up efforts to educate Singaporeans on managing their finances properly. Some banks in Singapore have started issuing booklets along with credit cards to teach Singaporeans how to use their credit cards wisely. Moneysense, a government funded institute, has also been conducting free financial talks for corporations. Huey Min, the general manager at Credit Counselling Singapore, believes that financial education should start early and be mandatory in all schools as part of their home economics subject. Sani Hamid, a debt advisor at AMP (Association of Muslim Professionals) Debt Advisory Centre says that too much focus is placed on how to make money and not on financial responsibility. But, Dr Siriwan, a senior lecturer at NTU, says not all debt is bad. She says that allowing people to make purchases on credit enables people to have their own houses earlier on in life. However, she said it was also imperative that they understand how to manage their debts and their desire to achieve more material comfort must match their ability to pay. Tune in to our final part of Talkabout to find out what our panellists have to say about how to manage your finances.

The real estate Price:Earnings Ratio (P:E Ratio) of housing or other property is just one of several valuation methods that some investors use as a guide to calculating the fundamental value of real estate property. It helps them to figure out if they should invest in the real estate or rent instead. It can be applied to real estate anywhere, such as New York, London, Toronto, San Francisco, Vancouver, and yes, even China! Is the property overvalued? Are we in a real estate bubble? This valuation method might not be suitable for all viewers. After viewing this video, please consult your own financial advisor, mortgage advisor, and realtor for more information.
