Ollie Smith: There's an ETF for everything these days.

No, genuinely. There's an ETF for video games. There's an ETF that invests in companies with “biblical” values. There's even an ETF for pet care.

So why have such products become so popular? And, in the era of SEC-approved bitcoin spot ETFs, how should investors navigate this labyrinthine world – all while staying diversified, and keeping a good handle on their risk tolerance?

Enter Morningstar. This week across Morningstar's European editorial websites, we'll be bringing you everything you need to know about exchange-traded funds. From the top and bottom performers to the broader market view, we'll be asking some pressing questions.

For instance: which global equity ETFs are the best? Where are passive strategies winning, and where are they losing? And: can ETFs really ever be active?

If all of this sounds confusing, fear not. We'll also have a simple guide for beginners too. From how ETFs work to how you should approach them with your tax profile in mind, we've got all angles covered.

Never again will you have to pretend you know what you're talking about at dinner parties when that weird guy who doesn't read social cues very well [*points to self*] brings it up. If only there was an ETF for good manners.

No really, there's an ETF for everything these days!
