Financial equities have long held a spot in investors’ portfolios, although the most recent bear market served as a rude reminder of the risks associated with this sector.

The Financial Equities ETFdb Category consists of approximately 40 exchange-traded products, including domestic and international funds, as well as products targeting narrow segments of this corner of the market such as broker-dealers, regional banks, and insurance.
