This ETF is different from traditional ETFs. Traditional ETFs tell the public what assets they hold each day. This ETF will not. This may create additional risks for your investment. For example:

 - You may have to pay more money to trade the ETF’s shares. This ETF will provide less information to traders, who tend to charge more for trades when they have less information.

 - The price you pay to buy ETF shares on an exchange may not match the value of the ETF’s portfolio. The same is true when you sell shares. These price differences may be greater for this ETF compared to other ETFs because it provides less information to traders.

 - These additional risks may be even greater in bad or uncertain market conditions.

 - The ETF will publish on its website each day a “Proxy Portfolio” designed to help trading in shares of the ETF. While the Proxy Portfolio includes some of the ETF’s holdings, it is not the ETF’s actual portfolio.

The differences between this ETF and other ETFs may also have advantages. By keeping certain information about the ETF secret, this ETF may face less risk that other traders can predict or copy its investment strategy. This may improve the ETF’s performance. If other traders are able to copy or predict the ETF’s investment strategy, however, this may hurt the ETF’s performance. For additional information regarding the unique attributes and risks of the ETF, see the Principal Risks section of the prospectus.

It’s a new year—time to tweak your investment plan

Key points

Aim high

Max retirement saving account contributions

Keep it balanced

Evaluate your investment mix against risk and goals

As the New Year rolls around, it may be time to evaluate where you are with your investment plan and consider making some changes to try to improve your standing.

Are you precisely where you want to be with your investment goals? If you are, congratulations. But if not, you’re not alone. About 38% of Americans cited improving their finances as a top resolution for 2024.1

Investing goes hand-in-hand with saving, and there are plenty of investing habits that may put you in better shape for achieving your New Year’s financial resolution.

Make a long-term plan—and revisit it annually. Investing money without a future plan leaves you without direction or motivation. Write down how much you’re currently investing, how much you plan to invest over time, and what goals you’re hoping to achieve. Then revisit your strategy at the same time next year.

Invest more. The median household retirement savings for all families was $87,000 as of 2022, the most recent year of data available.2 The expected retirement timeframe for men is 18.6 years and for women, 21.3 years in the United States.3 Even with Social Security, those retirement savings may not be enough to finance the comfortable retirement you may envision. If you aren’t maxing out your retirement savings accounts, such as your IRA and your 401(k), this may be an ideal time to bump up your contributions.

Invest regularly. If you haven’t automated your investment contribution plan, you’re missing out on a popular method that simplifies the process. Once you’ve chosen your investments, it’s simply a matter of contributing regularly to those investments to try to continue to build your wealth taking advantage of compounding interest. You can set your plan on autopilot by arranging to have a set amount of money automatically transferred from your bank into your investment account each month. That way, your contributions will continue to flow into your investment plan without any additional thought or effort on your part.

Investing Insights newsletter

A monthly digest of market events and our perspectives around them.

Read more. Reading can help you become more informed and aware of ideas or events that may affect the way you invest. Make it a habit to peruse the news regularly to stay up to date on market trends and potential investment opportunities. With your reading, you may develop a better understanding of how markets are continuously changing, which should be reflected in your monthly investing statements.

Get your high-interest debt off the table. If you’re in debt, get serious about paying off first your higher interest loans and then all loans this year. You’ll have more money to put toward saving and investing if you no longer need to pay interest on things such as car loans and credit cards. To make it easy, use debt pay-off calculators available online to help determine how much you would need to put toward your balance each month to pay off each high-interest debt by next year. For instance, if you have a $5,000 balance on a credit card with a 20% interest rate, you will need to submit $463 a month to pay it off in 12 months without adding any additional credits.

Having a Roth IRA and a 401(k) can be a helpful step in your retirement planning. Learn more about the differences between the two and benefits of both.


Mutual funds for every objective

Stock, bond & mixed-asset funds—get to know the difference.


Asset allocation funds can help tame volatility

Market volatility is inevitable, but you can help mitigate volatility in your own portfolio by investing in asset allocation mutual funds.

Evaluate your investment mix against your risk tolerance. How long has it been since you looked at how your money is being allocated and compared it with your original goals and tolerance for risk in your investments? As the markets ebb and flow, you may find yourself with a different allocation of stocks and bonds than you initially intended, which may be out of alignment for your risk profile. Even if your investments are all in mutual funds, your allocation balance may have gotten out of whack.

Maybe when you first started investing, you focused on a specific asset class that was currently producing above-average gains, such as small cap growth funds or emerging market funds. But concentrating your wealth in a single area of the market can be a recipe for disaster if that segment slides. This year consider branching out to other funds or asset groups to spread your risks. Or consider putting your money into an asset allocation fund that invests across multiple asset classes, such as stocks and bonds. While diversification may not prevent you from losing money on your investments, it may help mitigate your losses. 

Learn to sit still. Chasing performance—selling one type of investment to buy another type of investment that is currently doing better—is time consuming and increases the risk factor in your portfolio. Once you’ve established that you’re in the right mix of investments and that you’re putting enough away, practice patience and stick with your asset allocation strategy for the long haul—or until you reach a point in your life when it makes sense to tweak your allocation to align with your current goals and objectives.

In the end, managing your investment portfolio may be as simple as setting some concrete goals and checking in more frequently on your progress. Taking steps now toward becoming a more consistent, diversified investor can put you on a better track for savings and investment success.
