#5: VFIAX Vanguard Fund SP500 Fund
Cost: 0.04% Expense Ratio
Minimum: $3000 Investment
Alternative ETF: VOO – 0.03% Expense Ratio
This is a Vanguard Index Fund that follows the SP500, which is the top 500 publicly traded companies in the United States. Buying this ONE index fund is basically the equivalent of buying all 500 of the largest companies in the US, and you’ll get access to some of the bigwigs like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook, and so on.

#4: VTSAX Vanguard Fund Total Stock Market
Cost: 0.04% Expense Ratio
Minimum: $3000 Investment
Alternative ETF: VTI
What makes this so unique is that it encompasses the ENTIRE US stock market in ONE single fund…like, this is EVERYTHING. If there’s a small cap, medium cap, or large cap stock in any industry you can think of – this index fund has a tiny piece of it…and for one low price, you can get exposure to 3,529 stocks…

#3: SWPPX Charles Schwab SP500 Fund Fund
Cost: 0.02% Expense Ratio
Minimum: NONE
This index fund was started in 1997 and it ALSO follows the SP500.

#3 (Tied): SWTSX Charles Schwab Fund
Cost: 0.02% Expense Ratio
Minimum: NONE
This encompasses the entire US stock market index, similar to VTSAX.

#2: FXIAX Fidelity Fund Total Stock Market Fund
Cost: 0%
Minimum: NONE
This is Fidelity’s version of the SP500 index fund with NO EXPENSE RATIO and NO MINIMUMS.

#2 (Tied): FZILX Fidelity International Stock Market Fund
Cost: 0%
Minimum: NONE
This is, in my opinion, a GOOD index fund for everyone to at least get in on – because an international index fund will cover foreign and emerging markets that COULD perform very well over the next few decades. Now, it is true that – Historically, the SP500 has been a better investment than international stocks – but that might not ALWAYS be the case, especially as other markets are REALLY ramping up production and consumption. It also gives you a little more diversification OUTSIDE the United States – just in case, you never know.

#1: FZROX Fidelity Total Stock Market Fund
Cost: 0%
Minimum: NONE
Unlike Vanguard, which has a 0.04% expense ratio – this one has NO EXPENSE RATIO. It’s TOTALLY FREE.

#1 (Tied): FNILX Fidelity SP500 Index Fund
Apparently, they couldn’t just say this is the SP500 because they’d have to pay fees to license that name…but hey, call it whatever you want if that means they can pass the savings on to the customer. With this, you’ll get the same SP500 index fund with no minimums and no fees…so, there you go, that’s a win for this fund.

So between everything I just mentioned, you should be able to find the PERFECT index fund to invest in – index funds within Vanguard certainly have the name recognition behind them, but others like Charles Schwab and Fidelity are cutting fees in an effort to get you to buy theirs, instead. Either way, this is GOOD for you – because now, you get to save more money.

Seriously, if all you did was just buy a total stock market index fund every month and nothing else – over 20 years, you would out perform the VAST majority of hedge fund managers, and you’d put yourself in a GREAT financial position to make as much money as possible. Investing doesn’t need to be complicated, and it doesn’t need to be expensive, either…any of these index funds I mentioned would be a great choice, and I hope this is helpful to maximize the value of every dollar possible.

    Graham you should consider capital gains distributions for the funds you are talking about. Vanguard holds a patent that allows it to not distribute any cap gains, which makes it better than other index funds, assuming you are holding it in a taxable account.

    What about SCHD, SPHD, VNQ, VTI? What about a strategy for dividend investors?

    😍As of November 2020, I have been investing in dividend stocks and dividend stocks only. $100 is transferred into my Robinhood account every Monday. My portfolio currently has a 3.42% dividend yield. I always try to invest in stocks that have a higher individual dividend yield than my portfolio's average. Therefore, assuming it stays the same this week, I will only invest in companies paying a dividend higher than 3.42%. So far, I've made a 6.7% profit on my initial investment with Elizabeth Wilder Richardson. Her delivery percentage is A-List. Her n@me is on the web_

    Index funds are too slow when you don’t have several hundred thousand dollars or more.

    Are the returns you mentioned inflation adjusted? Dividend reinvestment included? Two critical considerations to consider.

    Investing in index funds as being the best strategy is the biggest f*cking joke. I can point to multiple active managed funds that continuously have outperformed their benchmark, and that's even in the 10 & 15 year marks. Multiple passive funds are continuously in the bottom half of their Morningstar category ranking while their active counterparts are consistently in the top half or even quartile. AND, you can access them in the same platforms at most Investment Advisor/Brokerage firms, so those firms aren't earning commissions by trading active funds with front-end/back-end loads.

    How about Vanguard's VTWAX? Any thoughts?

    Edit: can I use these index funds on other apps, or can I only get the Fidelity Index Fund if I'm using the Fidelity app? I think I'm probably going to use Vanguard.

    Okay I'm confused though, because if I am using Robinhood, do I see any of those fees? Does Robinhood see those fees? If I want to use the Fidelity S&P 500 Index Fund can I use that on Robinhood, or do I have to use it on fidelity? I think I've seen the Vanguard ones on Robinhood. But I am just using Robinhood as an example. I'm probably going to move over to Vanguard or a different brokerage that has good customer service. So can I only use the Fidelity Index Fund if I'm using the Fidelity app or website?

    in the long run(+1year) is there an important difference if I go for a CFD(no leverage) instead of an ETF index fund?

    Hi graham! What’s a good way to diversify between an s&p 500, total stock market, and international? Evenly across or more towards specific funds?

  18. Registeredanimagus
    July 17, 2021 at 4:48 am

    If any one can answer this question I would so appreciate it! (I’m a newbie)

    I have an individual account and a ROTH with Fidelity. I invested my ROTH in a target date fund and so far have invested in two stocks in my individual account. Sooo my question is: Can I still use my ROTH to invest in some of the Fidelity index funds he spoke about in this video even tho I invested in the TDF already? Or should I invest in those indexes using the individual account?

    Thanks for any help 🙂

    Warren Buffet: a know-nothing investor by regular deposits into Index Funds can beat the experts.
    Vanguard started the negligible fee in Index Funds and saved billions in fees for investors. Cumulative. Acknowledged by Warren Buffet.
    Thanks to Jack Bogle, founder of VANGUARD and Father of Index Funds.
