Best ETFs for Your Investment Portfolios

We mixed and matched our 20 favorite exchange-traded funds to create four model portfolios to suit most investors' needs.

Fund managers wage war against the markets every day, trying to pick stocks or bonds that will push them past their benchmark bogeys. More often than not, the markets win. But investors don’t have to lose out, too. They can choose to invest in exchange-traded funds instead. Broad ETFs can capture nearly all of a market’s returns by passively tracking a benchmark, such as Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index.
