What are ETFs and ETCs?

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are funds traded on a stock exchange. Most ETFs track the performance of a stock or bond index (such as the FTSE 100 or S&P 500).

Exchange Traded Commodities/Currencies (ETCs) follow the price of metals, oil, agricultural products or exchange rates.
