Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are passive investment funds that are traded on Stock Exchanges as is the case with traditional stocks. An instrument of growing popularity, ETFs combine the benefits and convenience of investing in stocks and those of investing in mutual funds, over and above the benefits of trading in Index CFDs.
Each ETF may track an Index or a Bond, which means that the objective of the ETF is to replicate the performance of that index or bond.
ETFS track specific stocks, bonds, commodity or currency indices – some of which have a regional focus, while others focus on one sector – which makes them ideal for diversified portfolios.
