Good afternoon all
Please forgive my ignorance but after reading/researching many articles and guides I believe the general idea for my situation at least is for my portfolio to be made up of at least 50% ETF’s. I’m planning on starting to build with a lump sum then investing £200 per month in the portfolio eventually including bonds, individual stocks and a cash reserve. My question is of the 2 S&P 500 ETF’s available on Freetrade how is it decided which companies make up the ETF’s. For example is it just like a smash and grab where if one has for say Apple the other can’t contain it or could they if they so wanted contain the exact same companies? Reason is I’m unsure wether to invest in both or just focus on building up on one of them. Again sorry for the dumb question
Thanks in advance.
