ETF Portfolio Solutions, Inc., one of the nation's first and leading investment advisers specializing in the portfolio management of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) is celebrating their fifth year of serving investors. Founded in 2004 by Richard D. Romey, ETF Portfolio Solutions serves individual and institutional investors by designing, implementing and maintaining equity, fixed income and alternative investment portfolios utilizing the 21st century's most revolutionary and transformative investment vehicles, ETFs.
"ETFs are the most important financial innovation of the last 30 years and will eventually replace mutual funds as the investment of choice in the portfolios of millions of investors," according to Mr. Romey author of Strategic Index Investing - Unlocking the Power of Exchange Traded Funds. As an early advocate of ETFs, Richard has been a leading voice in the growth and development of the ETF-based investment management industry.
William E. Koehler, CFA, joined ETF Portfolio Solutions in June of 2008 as chief investment officer. Mr. Koehler, a 27 year industry veteran and former head of investment oversight at American Century Investments, has been an important addition to the firm.

First introduced in 1993, ETFs combine the most attractive features of index mutual funds and common stocks. Portfolios of ETFs have the tax efficiency, low cost and diversification benefits of index mutual funds as well as the liquidity, flexibility, and intra-day trading of common stocks.
Presently, there are over 700 ETFs available tracking every segment of the investment markets, with total assets of over $600 billion. "ETFs are revolutionizing and transforming the investment industry. I am convinced that ETFs will continue to benefit investor portfolios tremendously," said Mr. Koehler.
