We’re excited to announce our “DIY ETF” tool, which gives clients the ability to create a custom basket of stocks, ETFs and/or mutual funds weighted according to traditional and proprietary factors.

With one click, clients can download a standard order form that brokers can use to create a DIY ETF based on the clients’ customized basket. Access the DIY ETF tool on the Portfolios page, as seen in Figure 1.
