Deals on the Train Are Everyone’s Business - Bloomberg
The way a mutual fund works is that a bunch of people put money in a pot and the manager of the pot uses the money to buy some stocks. Sometimes the fund will also have to sell some stocks, either because one of the investors in the pot wants to take money out (and so the manager needs to sell stocks to get the money to give back to the investor), or just because the manager wants to sell some stocks to buy some different stocks. If the fund sells a stock for more than it paid for it, it has a taxable profit, which is passed on to the investors in the fund. 1  So if you invest in a mutual fund, you will sometimes have to pay taxes on the fund’s trading activities.

The way an exchange-traded fund works is different. The simple way to think about the difference is: ETFs do not sell stock. 2  For one thing, lots of ETFs have traditionally been passive index funds, which just buy all the stocks in the index and hold them; their managers never decide to buy different stocks, so they never have to sell old shares to buy new ones. For another thing, when investors want to take their money out of an ETF, they do not actually “take their money out”; instead, they just sell the ETF on the stock exchange to another investor. (Thus: “exchange-traded fund.”) This means that investors can get their money back without redeeming out of the fund, which means that the ETF doesn’t need to sell shares to redeem investors. Since ETFs don’t have to sell shares, they don’t have taxable profits to pass on to their investors. And so if you invest in an ETF, you won’t have to pay taxes on the ETF’s trading activities (because there are none). (Technically you have only deferred taxes—when you ultimately sell your ETF shares, you will be taxed on any appreciation—but that can be a long time, and it’s a nice perk.) And this is a principal selling point of ETFs. “ETFs have lower capital gains and they are payable only upon sales of the ETF,” says Fidelity. “ETFs are typically structured with the aim to shield investors from capital gains taxes,” says BlackRock.
