If you’re looking to buy an index fund that tracks the entire stock market, there are two main options: VTI and FZROX.
Both funds do a fantastic job of following broader markets.
In this article, we’ll explain why FZROX is the alternative to Vanguard’s VTI.
VTI: Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF
VTI, short for Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF, is an index fund with over 4,000 stocks.
You can find small, mid, to large-cap stocks within the holdings of VTI. By investing in one simple ETF, your portfolio will own a basket of the broader stock market.
What Is the Fidelity Equivalent of VTI?
FZROX is the Fidelity version of VTI and you can only buy it on the Fidelity platform.
The fund tracks an index called Fidelity U.S. Total Investable Market Index.
Similar to VTI, the portfolio of FZROX contains more than 2,900 stocks.
