Best Funds: iShares Russell 1000 Growth (IWF)

best-funds-iwfAs with any strategy, you want to remain diversified, so I don’t go with all equal-weight ETFs.

I modulate this strategy a bit with the iShares Russell 1000 Growth (IWF). In this case, I’m focusing on growth in the hopes of long-term outperformance. IWF specifically gives you exposure to mid- and large-cap stocks that, as iShares says, “exhibit growth characteristics.”

It also gives me exposure to those big stocks everyone loves like Google (GOOG) and Apple (AAPL), but without going overboard and having them represent massive positions.

IWF also is a fairly inexpensive fund at just 0.2% in fees.
