ETF Portfolios

We’ll match you with one of these five model ETF portfolios, after getting to know you, your investment objectives and risk tolerance.

An ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) is an investment fund that represents a basket of stocks, bonds or other investments. Unlike conventional mutual funds, an ETF is traded on a stock exchange and often tracks a market index or may have a specific investment strategy. ETFs can be an attractive investment option as they provide the investor a low cost option to build a well-diversified portfolio.

Performance results are as of March 31, 2018.
