A WISE WAY TO 401(K)


ETFs offer a number of benefits that can make them effective for 401(k) investors. They provide diversification1, low fees, intraday liquidity2, transparency3, and much more. And, as WisdomTree ETFs are built differently, they also offer investors thoughtful innovation, smart engineering and redefined investments.


In fact, our family of 69 ETFs covers everything from equities to fixed income, alternatives and currencies around the world.

BENEFITS OF ETFS


As the 401(k) industry shifts its focus to cost and transparency, ETFs offer a number of benefits that can help address these needs.

LOWER FEES


High fees may erode 401(k) plan performance. In fact, even a 1% difference in total fees can have a significant impact on participant savings—an effect that increases over time.


In the hypothetical illustration below, we show a higher fee versus a lower fee scenario, with average annual returns (avg. ann. returns) of 6.50% and 7.50% respectively on an initial investment of $25,000.

  • Over the course of 20 years, a $25,000 investment with 6.5% returns will grow to about $88,091.13
  • Over the course of 20 years, a $25,000 investment with 7.5% returns will grow to about $106,196.28

When you consider that retirement accounts can have a life of 30+ years, the impact of a seemingly small 1 percentage point difference in fees can truly be appreciated.

WISDOMTREE ETFS IN A 401(K) PLAN


ETFs when used within 401(k) portfolios offer several strengths that make them an effective long-term investment strategy. But not all ETFs are created equal. WisdomTree ETFs are built differently and offer benefits that may be attractive to retirement investors.


A Fundamental Difference

The vast majority of ETFs are market cap weighted1. So by design, they tend to hold more of a stock as its price is going up and less as it’s going down. We believe this has the potential to overweight overvalued stocks and underweight undervalued stocks, potentially exposing investors to higher risks and lower returns. WisdomTree weights securities in our equity Indexes by metrics of fundamental value like dividends or earnings, because we believe these are better indicators of a stock’s fiscal health than its price alone.


A Long-term Strategy

In addition, our dividend-based Funds offer the potential of lower volatility and income-generating yields. We believe our goal of capital preservation and reduced volatility makes WisdomTree ETFs a natural fit for most retirement investors.
