These days, there‚??s an ETF for just about every flavor of investor, not just the ones who like the taste of vanilla.

There are myriad reasons why investors should choose exchange-traded funds (ETFs) over mutual funds.

Yet these funds, known as ‚??vanilla funds,‚?Ě are by no means the only types of ETFs out there. There are leveraged ETFs, actively managed funds, inverse funds, funds that track relative strength and even funds with an ‚??ethical‚?Ě focus.
