Grandchildren: Use Index Funds

Build Your Portfolio Using Index Funds

For most investors, what type of investment vehicles to use is a no-brainer.  Unless you are extremely skilled, stick to index mutual funds or index ETFs and stay away from selecting individual stocks as the way to build the core of your portfolio.  Become a passive investor or at the most, a Mosaic investor.  Educate yourself and then come to your own conclusion and it will become a simple choice.  Eschew actively managed mutual funds.  They are a losing game.
