Three ETFs to crack the US

These low-cost US exchange-traded funds are regarded as the big three ... and you can access two of them on the ASX.

Summary: Australian investors wanting exposure to the US market don't have to look too far at all. Investors can tap into exchange-traded funds that offer broad exposure to the S&P 500 index, and two major funds are listed on the ASX.  

Key take-out: Picking between the three biggest US ETFs is difficult. As the three funds we examine all do the same thing, the key differentiator is cost.

Key beneficiaries: General investors. Category: Exchange-traded funds.
