Differences between ETFs and Mutual Funds



Differences between ETFs and Mutual Funds



The price of an ETF varies during the course of trading day while Mutual Funds (and also index funds) are priced once a day at the close of the market.

The price of the ETF is thus determined by investor demand at any given time during the trading day.

ETF’s typically have lower expenses than a similar mutual fund as there are no loads like front load/back load/level load and also their operating expenses are often lower.
