ETF stands for exchange-traded fund. As its full name suggests, an ETF is an investment fund whose shares can be traded on an exchange.

As you may know, an investment fund is an institution that collects money from investors to buy assets that will generate a return if their value increases. By investing high amounts of money, an investment fund is able to keep transaction costs low thanks to economies of scale.

The second main feature of an ETF is that you can trade it on an exchange. Pretty much like listed companies, exchange-traded funds divide their ownership into shares that can be bought and sold on exchanges by placing an order at a broker like BUX Zero.

This feature distinguishes them from other investment funds like mutual funds, making ETFs generally more liquid, which means that you can buy or sell your stake in an ETF more quickly, easily and securely at any time during market hours.

Usually, an ETF invests in a basket of assets from the same class, often by passively replicating an index.

ETFs can invest in any asset class: stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies … you name it. Despite not directly owning the underlying securities, when investing in an ETF you become entitled to receive all the income they generate, be it dividends or interest payments.

Usually, an ETF invests in a basket of assets from the same class, often by passively replicating an index — e.g. the FTSE 100. In that case, fund-management costs will be very low, because the process is highly automatable. Index-tracking ETFs show therefore very low fees compared to actively managed funds, which makes them a great instrument to diversify your investments quickly, easily and cheaply.
