#1 The S&P 500 Index
On average, the S&P500 has returned investors 8-10% per year. Which isn’t anything crazy compared to the latest crazes like Shiba Inu, but it is pretty consistent and much less volatile.
Well the S&P500 is the top 500 American companies. In order to be included in the S&P 500, a company must meet certain requirements, including achieving a specific market cap, having the majority of its shares in public hands, and being a public company for at least a year.
So if you buy 1 share of the S&P500, you will actually own a small piece of Amazon, Tesla, Apple, PayPal & so so much more. The S&P 500 tracks 11 different industries / sectors and no sector is more than 30% of the index. However it is worth pointing out that The S&P 500 is a bit tech heavy these days, with 5 big tech stocks dominating 23% of the entire fund.
The best I’ve found in the USA are, the VFIAX Index fund or the VOO ETF & The best in the UK would probably be the VUAG ETF.
#2 The Total Stock Market Index
Investing in everything means you can experience gains across the entire market, and unless a crazy crash happens, you should be ok. But even if it does crash, with time things bounce back.
The downside to this index is it depends on the entire market trending upwards. This means there could be an individual stock that you really believe in that goes to the moon, but you might not experience those gains because that one stock doesn’t play much of a role within the index fund.
The best I’ve found in the USA are the VTSAX Index fund and the VTI ETF. And the best in the UK is the VWRL ETF.
These are vanguard index funds but you should be available the buy them on most platforms including Public and freetrade!
# The Emerging Markets Index
Emerging markets are predicted by some experts to be on the rise, and whether I agree with this or not, I think it’s important for me to have at least a little of exposure to these markets.
Emerging market funds are absolutely the most risky type of index funds we’ve discussed. These funds include stocks from lots of different growing markets, and can be very heavy with Chinese companies.
Taking a look at a list of the largest economies in the world, a lot of them are emerging markets. So it just makes sense to me to throw a little of money in for diversification. Also, the population in these emerging markets Is absolutely huge so I think there is certainly potential for growth. Not only in their own countries but in exports as well.
The best I’ve found in the USA best is the VEIEX ETF and in the UK the VFEM ETF. But also other lots of emerging market funds available, so it’s worth having a look around!
#3.5 The Metaverse Index
Recently I’ve made a few videos on the Metaverse, and you guys seem super excited about it! Which is great, because I am too. This has just made me even more confident that the potential for profit is insane, and therefore it’s not something I can ignore.
But of course, The Metaverse isn’t here yet, and it’s all just speculation at the moment. I’ve been just picking my favourite stocks and building my own portfolio, but Roundhill Investments are offering a Meta ETF!
It’s also worth noting that this ETF also has quite a high expense ratio of 0.75%. Which may not sound like a lot but trust me it’s considerably more than a lot of the funds I’ve talk about so far.
