DENVER - The Financial Planning Association® (FPA®) today announced that the Journal of Financial Planning will roll out a new featured, monthly column on Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) with three of the industry’s most recognized ETF experts.
With more than 1,400 ETFs available to financial advisers and the clients they serve, the demand for clear, accurate information is greater than ever.
