How to Invest in Cancer ETF [ HHK ]

ETFs are among the fastest growing investment products available today. A big reason for this growth is that ETFs offer investors access to sophisticated asset classes and investment strategies.

ETFs make it easier and relatively inexpensive to get exposure to segments and sub-segments of the financial markets, as well as defined regions of the world. Investors can buy or sell exchange traded funds through a broker, the same as stocks. A brokerage commission to buy or sell will usually apply. It is similar to buying or selling shares of stock. Exchange traded funds are listed on an exchange and can be traded intraday, making it easy for investors to buy or sell ETFs. Investors can purchase as little as one share.

Investing in HealthShares™ can be as easy as 1, 2, 3.
