Diversify your investments with today's fastest growing financial product

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) offer access to a range of investments in a single trade, are usually less volatile than individual stocks, cheaper than most managed funds and more tax-effective. But how do you pick the one that's right for you? This straightforward book helps you weigh up your options, build an effective portfolio and maximise your profits.

  • Get to know the major players in Australia and New Zealand — find a broker, open an account and familiarise yourself with suppliers and indices

  • Understand risk control and diversification — learn the importance of a diversified, lowly correlated portfolio, and how ETFs can help you achieve this

  • Invest smartly in commodities and precious metals — tap into the returns offered by the Australian mining boom

  • Manage small-cap, large-cap, sector and international investments — take advantage of returns in local markets and invest directly in US-listed ETFs

  • Add bonds, REITs and other ETFs — secure consistent yields and add property to your investment portfolio

  • Work non-ETFs into your investment mix — improve returns through careful selection of active managed funds

  • Fund your retirement years — determine how much you need for retirement, and how ETFs can get you there
