    Hoping to learn more about setting up a portfolio where you invest in the market as a whole (cant recall the name right now).
    Have funds in Raize but would like more control over balancing this.

    You are speaking of index funds, specifically market capitalization ones. There are a few ways to do this, ETFs generally have the lowest fees and trade on the stock market like any other stock so are my preferred method.
    There are plenty of options as to what market you invest in (Australia, World developed etc) so pick what aligns with your goals. There are index funds that track other indexes, these all have higher ongoing fees and there is more sales than substance behind the index (ie high dividend) so long term returns will likely be sacrificed.
