What are Broad-Based Exchange Traded Funds?

These are Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) that have as their underlying tracking instrument an index or other financial product made up of a well diversified number of stocks. The smallest is the DJIA with 30 industrial stocks, represented by Diamonds, and the largest is the Russell 3000 Index, represented by the iShares Russell 3000 Index Fund.

Investors choose broad-based ETFs when they wish to achieve the greatest level of diversification while matching the returns of the underlying index. Purchasing a broad-based ETF allows the investor to a commit a small amount of financial resources and effectively own the same basket of stocks as are contained in a major index.
