Useful ETFsPosted: 2015-05-23
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) make up a large portion of my portfolio (though not all – a subject for a future post). I often struggle to lay my hands on a simple list of the key ETFs when I need it, despite useful resources like Monevator’s Low cost index tracker page.
I’ve just created a reference page listing the useful ETFs I look at. Points to note:
- It’s laid out the way I look at my portfolio. Equities vs Fixed income. And the geographies are UK/USA/Australia/other.
- I focus on physical ETFs, not synthetic ones.
- I prefer the lowest cost ETFs, which are listed first in each category.
- Everything on this list has a ticker and is easily tradable using an online broker near you.
- My investment biases/prejudices are visible. I’m barely investing in government bonds right now, given their record low yields, but I do like high yield corporate bonds. I use dividend / value ETFS, but not growth or sector ones.
I’d love any comments/corrections/suggestions.
