This year’s edition of the World Energy Investment report provides a full update on the investment picture in 2021 and full-year estimates of the outlook for 2022. It examines how investors are assessing risks and opportunities across all areas of fuel and electricity supply, critical minerals, efficiency and research and development, against a backdrop of uncertainties over how events will play out in 2022, namely the ongoing war in Ukraine, the outlook for the global economy, and in some countries the continuing public health risks from the pandemic.
The report focuses on some important features of the new investment landscape which are already visible, including the energy security lens through which many investments are now viewed, widespread cost pressures, the major boost in revenues that high fuel prices are bringing to traditional suppliers, and burgeoning expectations in many countries that investments will be aligned with solutions to the climate crisis.

Why ETFs are a good investment value – Yahoo Finance
Exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, can be a good way to diversify your portfolio and can be cost-effective.
“ETFs are generally less costly and easier to access for investors,” said Ben Johnson, Morningstar’s director of global exchange-traded fund research. “They offer investors access to a whole host of investment strategies, from total market indexes to actively managed portfolios of stocks linked to the metaverse, with low fees, superior tax efficiency, and often much smaller investment minimums—typically as low as the price of a single share.”
Here’s what industry experts have to say about how to make ETFs sound investment values.
Johnson notes it’s important to know and respect what the “ET” in ETF stands for. “ETFs trade like stocks, and investors should practice good hygiene when it comes to trading them to avoid running up a big trading cost bill,” he said.
Specifically, Johnson explained that investors should consider using limit orders when buying and selling ETFs.
“This will help to ensure that they get the price they ask for (if not better) and prevent them from transacting at a price they might not like,” he said.
ETFs are fully transparent, said Tom Lydon, vice chairman with VettaFi.
“They frequently update their holdings, so investors know exactly what they are getting themselves into,” he said.
Also, Lydon explained that ETFs are more tax efficient than traditional open-end funds. Due to structural differences, said Lydon, ETFs do not incur a capital gains tax like how mutual funds would, but still come with a capital gains tax upon the sale of the ETF by an investor.
According to Lydon, ETFs may be seen as an improved version of their mutual fund cousins, providing the benefits of mutual funds and then some.
“Some of the key selling points of ETFs beyond traditional open-end funds may include things like lower expense ratios, flexible intraday trading, transparent nature and improved tax efficiency for taxable accounts,” Lydon said.
Finally, unlike mutual funds that are bought and sold once per day after the market closes, ETFs trade all day long.
“If you are familiar with trading individual company stocks on a brokerage platform, then picking up an ETF should be a similar experience,” continued Lydon.
Furthermore, he said more knowledgeable investors may also utilize various trade orders for executing ETF trades, including limit orders and stop-limit orders, along with short selling, to better manage their investment experience.
