This ETF Could Help Grow Your Retirement Account

An investment that should be a part of any portfolio is an ETF, or exchange-traded fund. ETFs can be traded like stocks, yet they are structured like an index mutual fund, tracking the performance of a given index. There are roughly 7,000 different ETFs available worldwide with some $5.3 trillion in assets -- a number that is expected to grow tenfold over the next decade.
