Target Outcome: Seek Short-Term Accessibility and Flexibility
Many investors fail to appropriately consider liquidity when constructing their investment portfolios. Liquidity refers to accessibility to cash, or how easy it is to turn an investment into cash.
This is of particular concern during volatile markets. When unexpected losses or disruptions in securities markets impair asset values, investors may find that their portfolios are not sufficiently flexible to meet short-term liquidity needs. Investors seeking low costs, diversification and liquidity are increasingly utilizing ETFs.
FlexShares liquidity solutions may complement investors portfolios by providing targeted sources of liquidity in varied market environments and with various levels of sensitivity.
