Bank ETF Overview

Bank ETFs cover financial institutions that are traditional depository institutions that borrow at short rates and lend at long rates. You won't see massive investment banks like Goldman Sachs or Morgan Stanley here; instead, you'll find names like Zion's Bancorp or Bank of Hawaii. Then again, there are still very large firms in this segment—names like J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo make up a significant portion of the industry's market cap.
