Indexing, Structure Help ETFs Win Tax Battle
Although not all ETFs are tax efficient, Morningstar's Ben Johnson says low capital gains distributions can make them good choices for a taxable account.
Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz for Morningstar.com. As traditional mutual funds had another terrible year from the standpoint of taxable capital gains distributions, the case for owning ETFs, exchange-traded funds, in a taxable account grows. Joining me to discuss this topic is Ben Johnson. He is director of global ETF research with Morningstar.
Ben, thank you so much for being here.
