Dividend ETF

A Dividend Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) is an investment vehicle holding assets in high dividend paying stocks or REITs. ETFs are built like conventional mutual funds, but priced and traded throughout the day like individual stocks. ETFs are passively managed around an index. That index may be the result of certain screens, such as companies with high dividends. Key ETF benefits include instant portfolio diversification, tax efficiency and transparency of cost and holdings. ETFs may be part of the core portfolio of an income-seeking or risk-averse stock investor.

Investing in dividend-paying stocks and/or ETFs is a key strategy for:

• Income and total return potential
• Possible reduced volatility
• Generally greater inflation protection than bonds

Dividend ETN

A Dividend Exchange-Traded Note (ETN) is a senior, unsecured, unsubordinated debt security issued by an underwriting bank. ETNs are not index funds, but they do share being linked to the return of a benchmark index. As debt securities, ETNs don't actually own anything they are tracking. Thus ETNs have an additional risk compared to ETFs: if the underwriting bank goes bankrupt, the investment might lose value, the same way a senior debt would. Most ETNs do not pay periodic dividends. ETNs have long maturity and symmetric return. They can be leveraged (often called BULL) and/or they can be inverse (often called BEAR).
