Index tracker funds are a great choice for investors who are seeking well diversified investment at low cost.
An index tracker will seek to replicate a particular stock market by closely tracking performance. The fund will typically buy all the company shares in the index. This is different to actively managed funds where a fund manager tries to outperform the index.
