INSIDE INVESTOR: The power of the ETF

A simple way to create a diversified portfolio is to trade in ETFs, or Exchange Traded Funds. Such funds are based on a basket of investment products and can remove the uncertainty of picking individual stocks.

If you need any evidence of how furious the pace of change is in the business world these days, just consider how acronyms have infected our everyday language. We need to communicate so quickly, almost everything is reduced to a bunch of letters.

Consider the YOY performance of the ASX since the GFC. Shocking! Or think how much time it takes to compare the various PE trends of FMG and BHP to the PCP. It can drive you nuts.
