This book is for self-directed investors who want to identify quickly the lowest cost diversified exchange-traded funds (ETFs). This book is written by the Managing Director of an independent California Registered Investment Adviser firm, who also holds an MBA from Stanford University, MA from Brandeis University, and BS from MIT.

The core of this book provides tables that list the lowest cost index ETFs, grouped by asset classes, which individuals can purchase through discount brokers. The book explains the research validated screening methods used to select these low cost ETFs and to exclude others.

This book will increase your investment knowledge and help you improve your ability to self-manage your own investments. It helps you to understand the important issues associated with efficient ETF trading and optimal personal portfolio management.

Financial industry personnel receive higher compensation to promote more expensive funds. The vast majority of funds promoted are unnecessarily expensive and will not serve your best interests.

You have to seek out by yourself the lowest cost investment funds. The good news is that low cost ETFs are reasonably straightforward to buy through discount brokers, once you know where to look and what to look for.
