Hi! Can someone explain to me what the difference is between IVV, VOO, and SPY?

All three exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are relatively the same, mirroring their compositions and performances.

That said, here the minor differences between the ETFs:

Expense Ratio

  • iShares Core S&P500 ETF (IVV): 0.04%
  • SPY: SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY): 0.09 %
  • Vanguard S&P500 ETF (VOO): 0.04%

Dividend Yield

  • IVV: 1.98%
  • SPY: 1.83%
  • VOO: 1.85%

Five-Year Returns

  • IVV: +10.87%
  • SPY: +10.8%
  • VOO: +10.89%

In the end, it really depends on your investment strategies and how much you want to save on fees. If you're an active trader, SPY is the way to go. If you are a passive trader who wants to hold something long-term, think about adding VOO to your portfolio.
