Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI)
Expense Ratio: 0.05%
I’m a big believer in all-cap investing, and this next fund is one of the best ETFs to use as a benchmark for any portfolio. The Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI) tracks the CRSP U.S. Total Market Index, which invests in large-, mid-, and small-cap stocks.
Basically, if it trades on the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq, it’s in this index.
Plus, this Vanguard ETF charges just 0.05% and its annual turnover is wonderfully low at 3%. And VTI has outperformed the Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO) by 20 basis points annually over the past three years.
That’s why it’s more than just one of the best ETFs. If you were to own just one fund, this is the one to choose.
