The Bottom Line: Whilst Exchange Traded Funds may have lower costs than actively managed equity funds (as they don't have to conduct research), they do still have some costs and so are expected to underperform the index just like their actively managed brethren on average do. However, because they are not taking positions relative to the index, the underperformance relative to the index should be more stable than for actively managed funds.
