I recently read Graham's "The Intelligent Investor" and think that my best bet to grow my money is investing in index funds.
I made a spreadsheet on the various index funds I gathered information from so far here:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VnrFToTo67-5dm25r47Fqm29Z7jJ_9sT/view
. As you can see, there are parts missing and I may have made a lot of mistakes (I'd appreciate it if you can point out my errors and add additional information).
From the data I have gathered, UCPB's index fund seems to be the top choice, mainly because of its low trust fee and its low costs for the initial and additional investments which is perfect for a person with low-income like me.
For you, what are the qualities of a great index fund that I should look out for? Are there variables that I have to check in detail other than those listed in my spreadsheet? For example if there are hidden fees(non-management fees like external auditing fees) or if the investment is ensured by the government.
