Build a Reflation Portfolio With ETFs

ETFs are the way to go for investors wanting to build a reflation portfolio, said Tim Middleton, investment strategist and columnist at MSN Money.

“The important attribute of ETFs is that you such have a wide built-in diversification within your asset class,” Middleton told CNBC.

“You’re not taking any additional risk and you’re not taking any manager risk. These are index funds — nobody’s going to step in and muddle it up. And they are dirt-cheap.”
