The Pros & Cons of Sector Funds

By Mark Barnicutt on January 28, 2011

In a Financial Post interview with Andrew Allentuck, Dan Hallett (VP & Director, HighView Financial Group), provides an overview of the pros and cons of investing in Sector Funds.

At HighView Financial Group, we’re against buying sector funds.  As Dan notes, “The argument for the concept is to get some tilt — some advantage — in the portfolio. But it is dangerous. Sector funds are more likely to have extreme performance. It is better to leave the sector allocations to the managers of broad market equity funds.”
