I want to find alternatives to an ETF.

How can I find ETFs whose portfolio intersects as much as possible with this ETF?

    I cant understand what you are asking gramatically, please rewrite this question to be more clear – Vality Jun 19 at 18:31

  • For what purpose? Why not just invest in the "original" ETF? – D Stanley Jun 19 at 19:01
  • @DStanley There can be many reasons. You might want to find an ETF with a lower expense ratio that has most of the same stocks. Or you might like most of the holdings in the portfolio, but you want to avoid one that has a high weight that you think is too risky. – Zesty Jun 19 at 19:03

There are various comparison tools available.

My broker offers a Mutual Fund/ETF Replicator tool that suggests alternatives with lower fees.

There are various internet tools as well. Here's an example of one at:https://www.etfrc.com/funds/overlap.php

It indicates that the SPY has 505 holdings, VOO has 512 holdings and that there are 503 overlapping constituents.

There are also correlation tools available that will compare the performance of ETFs over a designated time period.

  • May I ask which broker you use, Bob? – Zesty Jun 19 at 18:51

    I have three brokers but I do the vast majority of my trading at Interactive Brokers (it has the tool that I mentioned if that's what you're after). – Bob Baerker Jun 19 at 19:08
