Mutual Funds and Exchanged Traded Funds

GWN Securities presents a diverse universe of fund families tailored to accommodate a multitude of investment objectives, including but not limited to asset growth, capital preservation, and tax exempt income portfolios.

Both mutual funds and ETFs represent a collective investment vehicle where investors pool their capital to pursue a unified goal. This is facilitated by a professional fund manager who is responsible for the acquisition and disposition of the fund's securities. Mutual funds serve as an efficient means to collectively invest in a broad range of stocks, bonds, and money market instruments within a single consolidated investment. Over the last twenty-plus years, mutual funds and ETFs have become among the most favored investment avenues.

The advantages of mutual funds/ETFs include risk mitigation through diversification, enhanced liquidity, and often a degree of flexibility that allows investors the option to transition between investments within the same family of funds. The expenses associated with mutual funds are divided into two primary types: sales charges (referred to as "loads") and ongoing management fees. While no-load funds and ETFs do not levy sales charges, they still incur operational costs that are subtracted from the fund's returns.

The extensive selection of fund families provided by GWN Securities caters to various financial aspirations such as wealth accumulation, value increase, and earnings that are not subject to taxation.

It must be noted that the value of mutual fund shares/ETFs is subject to market volatility and thus, upon redemption, they may either appreciate or depreciate in value relative to the initial investment sum. Additionally, these shares carry varying levels of risk contingent upon the specific objectives of each individual fund.

For detailed information regarding the securities offered, inclusive of potential risks, charges, expenses, and fees, interested parties are encouraged to procure a prospectus from a GWN Registered Representative. Investors should thoroughly review this document before making any investment decisions or transferring funds.
