Index Investing ETF Overview

Index investing, also known as passive investment management, simply attempts to track the performance of an index. Investors can use techniques such as full replication or factor optimization to match the index performance.

For many investors, index funds are attractive vehicles due to their low costs and exposure to a desired market. An intangible benefit of index investing is the introduction of an established set of rules that help the investor keep track of his or her objectives.
