Hi Milan,

If you want to diversify your portfolio, then, exchange-traded funds are the go-to option. ETFs are almost similar to mutual funds; they bring assets together to come up with a particular objective that aims at tracking a given index. However, ETF trade in a stock exchange, just like stocks. You need not have any minimum balance to diversify your portfolio in ETFs like that required in mutual funds. 
 The drawback in ETFs is that, for any share trade you make, you need to pay a commission for it. On the bright side, however, you can invest in commission-free ETFs that platforms such as Vanguard and Fidelity have made available. Commission-free ETFs are best if you are not a frequent trader.
 These companies offer commission-free ETFs if they own the platform in which the trade is made. For example, if you own an account with a vanguard, you will not pay transaction fees while placing a deal. It would help if you made your ETFs available on a minimum of two platforms for you not to pay commissions for your trades.
The main objective of an ETF is to track an index. Before you start dealing in any ETFs, you should know the asset allocation strategy that best suits you and the one you are willing to pursue.
Commission-free ETFs may be grouped into large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap stock ETFs. In large-cap stock-ETFs, you may choose to have the are Core S&P 500 ETF (IVV). IVV follows the S&P 500 as its benchmark. The S&P 500 is among the most popular and tracked index. The Vanguard Growth ETF (VUG) is also a sizeable large-cap stock ETF. It pursues the MSCI US index. You can also deal with the Vanguard Value ETF. 
In the mid-cap stock ETFs, You can invest in the Vanguard Mid-Cap, which usually tracks the CRSP US Mid Cap index. You can also deal with the Vanguard Mid-Cap Growth ETF (VOT) or the Vanguard Mid-Cap Value ETF. In small-cap stock ETF, you can deal with the Vanguard Small-Cap ETF, which tracks the CRSP US Small Cap index. It determines how small companies perform in the US equity market. You can also invest in vanguard small-cap value ETF. It tracks the performance of the MSCI US low cap Value Index, whose intention is to evaluate how small companies that deal with equity in the US perform.
