Tricks and Trends in ETF Investing

by: Erin Kello

As part of the WSJ's special monthly section "Investing in Funds", Leslie Scism and Jaclyne Badal take a look at which ETFs launched in 2007 captured investors' dollars.

One factor that did not play into what ETFs investors bought was expense. Scism and Badal found no clear pattern of how this affected investors' choices.
