The best indices for multi-asset ETFs

How do I invest in multi-asset ETFs?

With multi-asset ETFs, you can invest in exchange-traded funds that cover several ETFs and, usually, multiple asset classes at once. Such asset classes are, for example, equities, bonds, commodities or precious metals. Accordingly, multi-asset ETFs allow you to invest in several markets at once with just one ETF savings plan or a single order, thereby reducing your investment risk by diversification.

Some multi-asset ETFs modify their strategic asset allocation on a regular basis, while others follow a long-term Buy and Hold approach. So it is worth comparing. Currently, there are 21 multi-asset-ETFs available.
