Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

An ETF is a selection of stocks or securities grouped together and its price tracks that of an underlying index. ETFs can contain securities such as stock, commodities or bonds.  

An ETF is called an exchange-traded fund because it’s traded on an exchange just like shares. Investors can buy and sell an ETF with its market price fluctuating over time. There is a potential for gains as well as losses when involved in ETF trading.

There are various types of ETFs available to traders and investors that can be used to earn income, speculation price movements, or hedge risk on existing portfolios.

Examples of ETFs include:

  • Bond ETFs which can include government bonds or Treasuries, corporate bonds, state and local bonds called municipal bonds.

  • Industry ETFs which can track a particular industry such as technology, banking, or the oil and gas sector.

  • Commodity ETFs which invests in commodities such as crude oil or gold.

  • Currency ETFs invest in foreign currencies such as the GBP, Euro or U.S dollar.
