We’re getting back to basics. We’re talking funds, diversification, and all things that can go into your portfolio.

In this episode, we talk about mutual funds, index funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs). What do those terms even mean?

If you’re new to all this, relax. Our very own senior financial writer Jeremy Quittner is here to explain it all. We also tackle active vs. passive management, expense ratio, and why you never want to put all your eggs in one basket.
