    Remember to Add Bond Funds to the Christmas Wish List

    With the Federal Reserve keeping rates unchanged in its latest interest rate policy decision, it might be unclear what investors should do when it comes to interest rates in 2020 as 2019 winds down. However, if one were to follow the herd, then diving into bonds irrespective of what the Fed does in 2020 is the way to go.

    Bond ETFs Are Enjoying a Stand Out Year

    Bond ETFs have enjoyed one of their best years yet, attracting higher investment interest than the equity ETF side this year. Fixed-income ETFs, which only make up a slice of the overall ETF universe, have for the first time brought in more money inflows than the stock ETF side after investors funneled $191 billion into bond ETFs over the first 10 months of the year, compared to the less than $158 billion that flowed into equity ETFs, the Financial Times reports. “Adoption rates have accelerated noticeably as more investors have realised that fixed income ETFs can provide efficient solutions to some of the liquidity challenges of cash bond markets,” Deborah Fuhr, co-founder of ETFGI, told the Financial Times.

Investors continue to pour capital into bond funds and 2020 could be another banner year for fixed income. "Investors continue to pile into bond funds as 2019 winds down and as one of the biggest fund companies by assets under management, Vanguard bond funds have likely received much of investor's savings," a U.S. News & World Report article by Debbie Carlson said.

    The 7 Best ETFs for Retirement Investors

    Mutual funds almost go hand-in-hand with retirement investing. And why not? The modern mutual fund predates exchange-traded funds (ETFs) by more than six decades. Most 401(k) plans hold nothing but mutual funds. So it's reasonable to link one with the other.But don't sleep on exchange-traded funds. As you'll soon find out, while many of the best ETFs out there are tactical strategies and great trading vehicles, some of them are dirt-cheap, long-term buy-and-hold dynamos that can give investors what they need in retirement: diversification, protection and income.Many (though not all) ETFs are simple index funds - they track a rules-based benchmark of stocks, bonds or other investments. It's an inexpensive strategy because you're not paying managers to analyze and select stocks. And it works. In 2018, the majority of large-cap funds (64.5%) underperformed Standard & Poor's 500-stock index - the ninth consecutive year that most of them failed to beat the benchmark.Today, we'll look at seven of the best ETFs for retirement. This small group of funds covers several assets: stocks, bonds, preferred stock and real estate. Which ones you buy and how much you allocate to each ETF depend on your individual goal, be they wealth preservation, income generation or growth.
