Kevin Quigg describes the differences between ETFs, mutual funds, and the type of person who would benefit from hedge funds.
Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) is traded during the day, just as a single stock would be.
Mutual funds are typically bought directly through the mutual fund manager. The price is determined by the net asset value of the securities held within the fund at the end of the trading day.
Kevin Quigg describes hedge funds as different from ETFs and mutual funds as “sharp tools rather than dull instruments”. He goes on to explain that hedge funds are only available to qualified investors…those who have met certain requirements and proven themselves to be able to truly understand the amount of risk they are taking.
There are also numerous restrictions with hedge funds. Listen to Miranda’s interview with Kevin Quigg and then the discussion our roundtable has immediately following.

About our sponsor, BUZZ Index
Ever wonder if there were a way to capitalize on all of that online chatter made by millions of investors on social media? Well, your wait is over, because now advances in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing technologies are at your fingertips…. even if you personally don’t use social media! The BUZZ Index, licensed to an exchange-traded fund and trading under ticker symbol BUZ, provides investors with a portfolio of securities that delivers a basket of large-cap U.S. equities exhibiting the highest degree of positive investor sentiment. No surveys. No guessing. BUZ only tracks what’s volunteered – and if you ARE online, you know that a lot of information is volunteered: millions of posts, comments, and blogs are analyzed each month!
Here’s how it works: First, BUZZ targets the most mentioned large-cap U.S. stocks across the Social Media landscape. The more active the conversation, the greater the reliability of the BUZZ.
Each of the most-mentioned stocks is then given an insight score based on BUZZ’s proprietary analytics and the 75 stocks with the most Bullish scores are included in the Index. Each month the BUZZ is tracked to capture the latest Big Data driven insights and then the 75 companies with the most Bullish scores are selected, positioning BUZZ to capture the highest return potential.
