  • ETFs In 401k At A Quick Glance! 0 comments
    Oct 10, 2013 2:36 AM

    The latest decision coming in from the FED has brought in a lot of commotion in the market of stocks, bonds, and commodities. They have all shown positive results in their prices and iShares 20+ Treasury Bond ETF and Gold Shares ETF has seen a reverse effect on their prices. Taking a look at the different options available for investing for long runs, the 401(k) is an important lead that progresses towards the funding options available in the Market.

    The 401(k) plan offered by the US Government which allows the employees to settle with their interest in retirement savings contributions offers a retirement benefit in huge amounts. These contributions are provided by an employer and are deducted from the employee's paycheck before inculcating taxation. Where the employee prefers to invest in, is his own decision.

    Also known as the most common defined contribution retirement plan, where the investment happens through the payroll deduction, here the payroll deductions are sent directly to the company now in charge of your investment plans. Most of the plans offered by the employers are basically the traditional and conventional forms of investments. These retirement options have actually only accumulated a fixed deduction of the payroll for a large number of years locking their financial savings without any excitement and rewarding benefits. Often these come with a lot of hassles and high fees involved with them. The rewards are not too beneficial and most of the time the employees are not well educated about the pro and cons of the plans. What they would be gaining in the end of the tenure and what profits they can expect for the retirement savings that they have been making in during their work tenure. To put them on the safer and profitable side, the ETFs in 401k are the better option any time of the day! To break away from conventional financial plans the Exchange Traded Funds are the best thing. Convention mutual funds have underperformed at many times as compared to the other financial vehicles in the market. The years from 2000 to 2006 have not seen much gratifying benefits for the conventional funding.

    During the second quarter, the US economy has shown a slow phase of growth where there is a recorded economic growth of 2.5% at an annual rate. There is a strong anticipation of high exports and investment opportunities in the next quarters. So from the economic point of view there is a strong expectation of inflows of investments towards the exchange traded funds. The sectors that are most likely to benefit from this change of the direction of wind are the Technology and Industrials, with an extra focus on the Consumer Discretionary sector as well.

    China, US and Europe have been showing progressive reports in their economic conditions, favoring the industrial, manufacturing and consumer discretionary sectors of the economies after a much improved demand towards the consumer items catering to the demand for the housing facilities. So in all, the expansion on the consumer confidence has boosted the investment opportunities of the respective economies.
