E*TRADE today announced the launch of Investing Insights, an online resource center that presents a series of timely investing themes, based on the economic environment and proven financial strategies. Customers can use these investing ideas to make informed decisions for their portfolios.
"Many customers look to E*TRADE for help with their investing strategies, especially during periods of volatility and changing market dynamics," said Lena Haas, SVP, Investing and Retirement at E*TRADE. "We surveyed our customers to identify topics that keenly interest them as they make trading and investing decisions."
Investing Insights provides commentary, tools, education, and actionable investing ideas. It also provides modules on sound investment topics that apply across many investing themes. Designed to encourage investors to act on their own investing ideas or to provide inspiration for new ideas, this new resource is available to customers through the Research Tab on etrade.com. E*TRADE will continue to survey customers each quarter to determine which investing themes are most important to them and will regularly update the themes accordingly.
Each Investing Insight module includes a white paper created by E*TRADE Capital Management, a video interview with an independent analyst, independent research and commentary, and a list of investment choices. The five insights introduced today are:
Opportunities in a Stagnant Economy
Generating Income from Investments
Protecting Yourself Against Inflation with Commodities
Managing Risk with Asset Allocation
Core & Satellite Approach to Investing
For investors seeking additional guidance, E*TRADE's Financial Consultants are available in the Company's branches across the country and over the phone.
In addition to debuting Investing Insights, E*TRADE has updated the Investor Education Center on its public and customer websites with expanded content and improved functionality. Key highlights include:
