Exchange traded funds (ETF)

A simple way to start investing

ETFs are investment funds whose shares (units) are traded in stock exchanges.

Why choose ETFs:

  • Transactions with ETFs are as simple as trading stock
  • A possibility to create a diversified portfolio of securities on your own quickly and simply
  • Lower fees as compared to buying each stock individually

What’s ETFs (exchange-traded funds)?

ETFs are investment funds (mutual funds) that are listed on stock exchange and may consist of several asset classes, such as equities, bonds, currency (forex) instruments, commodities etc.

  • By just one investment you can get a basket of products: from stocks, bonds to commodities and currencies.
  • ETF assets are distributed across a range of investment instruments resulting in increased diversification and potentially reduced investment risk.
  • A major part of investors lack time or knowledge to keep track of each stock of companies representing the field they’re interested in.
  • Investing in ETFs saves time and gives an opportunity to invest in industries or indexes that you find interesting and feel confident about.
  • During stock exchange trading session, ETFs are traded just like company stocks.
  • ETF units can be purchased and sold quickly in the preferred quantity at a price acceptable to you.
  • ETFs, just like any other investment instrument, are also subject to various risks, such as legislative risk, currency risk, tax risk, interest rate risk and others.
  • It is important to be aware of those risks and to assess them on a continuous basis*.

*See here for more on the potential risks.
