Asset allocation and the construction of portfolios is one of the most important steps in creating a portfolio that will help meet your investment goals and objectives comfortably. One of the more popular -- and effective -- strategies in building portfolios is known as "core/satellite."

The core/satellite approach to constructing portfolios refers to creating portfolios that combine core asset classes with more niche satellite sectors and opportunities. ETFs are an ideal vehicle for investors wishing to create core/satellite portfolios, as they offer diversified and transparent exposure of various asset classes, categories and themes.
