Guide to ETFs and ETCs
Find out more about ETFs and ETCs
Exchange traded funds (ETFs) and Exchange Traded Commodities/Currencies (ETCs) are a popular and low-cost way to invest.
But why are they useful? And what do you need to know before you invest?
This plain-English guide provides information on ETFs and ETCs including:
- How ETFs and ETCs work
- The benefits and risks of investing in them
- How to invest
You should only invest in ETFs and ETCs if you have the knowledge, time and understand the higher risks of these type of exchange traded investments. We do not provide personal advice on these.
The value of investments can fall as well as rise so you could get back less than you invest. If you’re unsure if these are right for you or where to invest, seek advice.
