What's an etf image


What is an ETF?

Generally ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) are like investment funds, but they trade on major stock exchanges just like shares.

Unlike investing in individual shares, most ETFs offer the benefits of a diversified portfolio covering the component stocks of an underlying index. In other words, many of the risks involved are reduced by spreading them across a wide portfolio.

Typically, ETFs can be traded during dealing hours so investors can check prices and place orders just like for shares.
