What is an ETF?

An ETF is a stock market-listed index fund that combines the simplicity of shares with the ability to diversify traditional funds. This product enables you to invest in a diversified portfolio of assets with a single transaction. When you invest in a ETF, you invest in the performance of the index, so you don't have to buy the various shares that make up the index.

As an example, if you buy a SMI ETF, it will grow if the SMI increases.

The best-known indexes are the world's major 'shares' indexes: Dow Jones, SMI, DAX, CAC40, and so on. However, there are also commodities indexes (gold, oil) and bonds indexes.

What is an ETC?

An ETC is a stock-market listed security that tracks the performance of underlying commodity indices. ETCs trade in the same way as stocks but provide exposure to commodities including energy, agricultures and precious metals. Whereas ETF are funds, ETC are technically debt securities. The security is an asset backed by physical or commodity contracts.

ETC offer an easy way to track performance of commodities markets and trade like stocks. They offer attractive costs due to low annual management expense rates.
