This ETF offers exposure to U.S. banking institutions, delivering access to a narrow slice of the financial sector that has historically exhibited significant volatility but is capable of turning in big performances over a short period of time. Since KBE focuses on a narrow sub-sector of the financial space, it probably doesn't have much appeal for investors interested in building a long-term, buy-and-hold portfolio. But this fund can be useful for establishing a tactical tilt towards financial stocks, and may be an efficient way to go "bargain hunting" after big sell-offs in financial stocks. It's worth noting that KBE is a concentrated ETF; it holds only about 25 individual stocks, and makes some hefty allocations to the bigger names in the portfolio. That isn't necessarily a dealbreaker, but is worth considering when analyzing the options for targeted financial exposure. PJB offers similar exposure (with a higher price) while a slew of ETFs offer a way to play smaller regional and community banks (including KRE, QABA, and IAT).
