* Let’s talk index funds! An index fund is a mutual fund or exchange traded fund (ETF) tracking an underlying market index. Rather than picking stocks and trying to beat the market return, many investors buy broad index funds instead. Index funds offer broad market exposure, a low expense ratio, lower turnover and commission costs as well as a passive income stream. Most actively managed mutual funds fail to beat the average market return. Why pay for active fund management if the fund is not beating the S&P 500?

Popular Indexes:
S&P 500
Russell 2000
Wilshire 5000
FTSE 100

Vanguard index funds are the index funds or exchange traded funds I recommend. Vanguard offers over 60 unique index funds and their expense ratio is 71% lower than the industry average.

How To Buy Vanguard Index Funds:
1. Index mutual fund through the Vanguard site
2. Exchange traded funds (ETF) through the secondary stock market
3. Admiral shares for larger accounts

    I believe its higher. Not only will the vast majority (96%) of actively managed mutual funds not beat the market, they are going to charge us an arm and leg, and extract up to two thirds of your potential nest egg in fees. But they will still tell you they have the best interests at heart for helping you. Great video and I would recommend reading Tony Robbins Money Master the Game if you havent already!

    I agree with you on how you should invest in index funds. If you want to invest passively for the long term without basically caring too much go index haha. I would also suggest them over active funds. Fees eat into returns!!! Great video!

    Hey Ryan,
    I'm 18 and looking to invest early so that my money can grow over the long term. Which index fund would you suggest for a new investor? I've been interested in consumer staples index funds and information tech but not sure which sector would generate the best return. Any advice? Thanks

    Vanguard Total Stock Market Index would be the stock portion of my allocation? and Vanguard Total Bond Market would be the bond allocation? I'm thinking 80 stock 20 bond for mine. I have a vanguard account but want to know if I'm on the right track here

    Got any thoughts on the Aspiration Redwood Fund (REDWX)? They use a pick you own fee which can be $0, thought it was kind of an interesting approach. By the way just came across your channel few weeks ago and have been enjoying it ever since. I have one other guy I chat with about stocks but we are both novices. However even as a novice I have done well mostly due to timing LOL! Started investing in 2008!!

    Yeah I love index funds for my IRA and my long-term sections of my regular account as well, most of the pros can't pick stocks well enough to beat the market (as you stated) so for my safer investments I love indexes. I recently switched my stuff over to Schwab because they dropped their fees and offer a ton of research material. They have some awesome in-house indexes that they don't charge any fees to trade, and tend to track as well as Vanguard's (most of them) so that attracted me to giving them a shot. Good info Ryan!

    ETFs are one of the greatest vehicles for investment. An ETF can and will fluctuate but unlike an individual stock, it can't go to zero.
