Adding ETFs To Your Portfolio

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) can be a valuable component for any investor's portfolio, from the most sophisticated institutional money manager to a novice investor who is just getting started. In the core/satellite portfolio strategy, an investor chooses a core ETF (such as an ETF based on an index such as the S&P 500), and then selects individual securities that are expected to outperform the benchmark to form the satellites around the ETFs. Read on as we discuss the benefits of this strategy.

For more on the core/satellite investing strategy, see A Guide To Core/Satellite Investing.
