Invest in ETFs to diversify your risk
Just like a mutual fund, an ETF (or tracker) gives access to a number of stocks, bonds and other type of investments like commodities and property. The goal of an ETF is to follow an index as closely as possible. An ETF combines the best of two worlds: the diversification of a mutual fund and the liquidity of a stock. ETFs are very cost efficient, quoted and come in distributing and capitalization versions.
