Hello everyone,

I am trying to understand the pros and cons of index funds v/s ETFs for a fairly long time horizon investment (10+ years. In other words,
both purchases would be a buy-n-hold. I am not considering trading ETFs regularly), especially from a taxation standpoint.

Also, I was planning to invest now in index funds or ETFs and I am told that it is better to wait till the distribution is done (typically Dec).

Would appreciate any thoughts and advice.
