Important information: You should only invest in ETFs if you have the time and know-how to select and maintain a diversified portfolio. Our website does not give personal advice. Ultimately all investments and the income they produce can fall as well as rise in value so you could get back less than you invest. If you’re unsure where to invest, ask for advice.

What are ETFs?

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

Other Exchange Traded Products

There are other Exchange Traded Products which can allow you to track more than shares or funds. These include Exchange Traded Commodities/Currencies (ETCs) which follow the price of metals, oil, agricultural products or currencies.
