There are almost 500 ETFs under our coverage, many of which track the same indexes. It’s almost impossible for investors to perform due diligence on each of these ETFs — that would mean analyzing all of the stocks in each ETF, the stocks’ weightings, as well as analyzing all of the funds’ associated costs.
We do all of this diligence for you. We apply our work on almost 3,000 individual stocks to the holdings of all of the ETFs we cover, and we’re able to rate each fund on the quality of its holdings. When combined with our total annual costs rating, which takes into account all of the costs of being in a given fund for the average holding period, this level of diligence allows us to have the most complete and transparent fund ratings in the business.
The following is a list of our top 10 ETFs that have over $100 million in assets under management (AUM), and that are not leveraged.
