The Top 50 ETFs was created in summer 2014 as a list of long term building blocks for your portfolio. The list is designed to be a toolkit of useful and cost-effective exchange traded funds (ETFs). These are passive funds that are traded on the stock market and are growing in popularity among private self-directed investors.
In 2014, we first identified the best indices to track and then went in search of minimal tracking difference, low costs, and good liquidity for each ETF selection.
This year we have fine-tuned the selection by asking a panel of six expert ETF analysts to make recommendations.
