Charting the rise of the ETF may be interesting fodder for industry-watchers, but for investors the more pertinent questions may be: how, when, and why should I use an ETF? Should ETFs replace other holdings in my portfolio? How do I compare ETFs? What details should I know before diving in?

Morningstar.co.uk's ETF Investing Week aims to bring clarity to this fast-growing investment vehicle with a focus not only on what it is, but also what it does--and how ETFs may be used as both a building block in a strategic portfolio and as a key instrument in a tactical investor's toolbox. With help from Morningstar's European ETF analyst team, we cover the basics of these exchange-traded products, imparting our knowledge on how to research and select ETFs, and offering unique insight into ETF portfolio construction and tax implications.
