ETFs under the microscope Add to ...

Have you got a question on how ETFs work? Many investors favour them because they're cheap, tax-efficient and intended to be ideal for passive investors -- but many still have questions about them. And really, are there more ETFs out there than you need sometimes, while the one sector or theme you're interested in has yet to be covered?

Som Seif, president and CEO of Claymore Investments Inc. was online to take your questions. You can reread our discussion by clicking on the live blog box below.

Mr. Seif is a chartered financial analyst and has a Bachelor of Applied Science with an emphasis on industrial and systems engineering from the University of Toronto.
