Top Equity ETFs for Indexing Fans

Over the years, my thoughts and strategy regarding investing has matured.  At least I’d like to think so.  It started to change after reading Millionaire Teacher by Andrew Hallam and has been evolving ever since, thanks to other books about index investing using Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). If you don’t already know, the statistical evidence is overwhelming; indexing your portfolio will beat the pants off most active money management funds over time. In recent years, I’ve been using more indexed funds myself although I still feel holding ...

Top International Equity ETFs for your portfolio

Another case for Indexing – Asset Class Returns in 2013
