When looking for ways to diversify your investment portfolio outside of the United States, there are plenty of other possibilities. One way to reduce risk is to invest in a variety of stocks, both at home and abroad. Plus, with low investment minimums in the majority of our Kits, we work hard to keep the stock market accessible to retail invest of all levels.
If you invest in an S&P 500 index fund, you can expect the fund to closely mirror the performance of the index. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average both track the performance of the 500 largest U.S. stocks, and invest in these funds gives you exposure to a variety of stocks with a single investment.
When I reviewed the VictoryShares US Small Cap High Dividend ETF, I was impressed by their low-cost, diversified portfolio of small-cap stocks. It’s a great way to get exposure to a variety of small-cap stocks without having to pick individual stocks yourself.
