|Abstract:||This bachelor's thesis provides an analysis of the effect of timing and length of investment on return
with the use of ETF data. The results show evidence that both variables are affecting returns. The
author found a positive relationship between the length of an investment horizon and the probability
of a positive return, as well as significant differences in return among different starts of investments.
Further, the author describes ETF in the context of similar investment instruments such as other
types of funds and exchange-traded products with their main benefits and drawbacks.
