There are some good ETFs out there if you know how to identify them. Here are a few things that you need to look for in an ETF.

Stability

You want to choose an ETF that is managed by a stable company. ETFs are designed by large firms that have huge assets. Therefore, they are usually quite stable anyway. However, you want to make sure that the company running your ETF is at the top of their industry and has your best interests in mind. 

Performance

Most of the time, you can take a look at the overall performance of the ETF before you buy it. You want to buy ETFs that have shown that they can perform over the long haul. This is the best way to sustain growth.
