One of our readers told us she would like to know what the best low-cost ETF’s are. So we started looking and were not sure how to go about it. In the end, we decided to use the 50 best ETF’s on US markets in the past year that had a maximum expense ratio of .20%. Obviously, this list comes after an incredible stock rally with almost all indexes gaining double digits.
Some of you might be surprised to see that no leveraged ETF’s were among the top 50. That would not be because of their performance but rather because in general the expense ratios of leveraged ETF’s are considerably higher.
Also a sidenote, some of these ETF’s have an expense ratio of 0%. While that is technically true, I will explain tomorrow how these fees can be presented in a misleading way. The ETF’s presented here all belong here from what I could see. But permitting ETF’s to present their fees in such a way can be a bit misleading. I will get into that tomorrow.
So here we go, here is the top 50!
