Index Funds

Index funds mimic a certain market average, e.g. the S&P 500 or the NASDAQ. If you cannot find mutual funds that have low expenses, fees and taxes and your main desire is to have less overall expenses index funds are a great option. Almost all index funds will have expense ratios below 0.50% and other might be as low as 0.10%. There are less tax issues as well becuase they are passively managed and rarely have trades. If you want to outperform an index then you will need to look at funds that are actively managed.
