An exchange traded fund (ETF) is a fund that holds assets such as stocks, commodities or bonds.
ETFs track an index (i.e. it’s a “passive” investment and not managed by human fund managers).
ETFs are attractive due to their low costs.
Listen to the audio (scroll down) for a discussion on ETFs by Nerina Visser, ETFSA Strategist and Advisor.
Research proves that ETFs are three to five times cheaper than actively managed funds.— Nerina Visser, ETFSA
Most ETFs are unit trusts. There are six that aren’t; they’re invested in commodities.— Nerina Visser, ETFSA
There are 70 ETFs available to South African investors.— Nerina Visser, ETFSA
ETFs provide opportunities to invest in assets that would otherwise be difficult to hold. For example, oil. You can easily own gold, but you can’t keep a barrel of oil under your bed!— Nerina Visser, ETFSA
ETFs that track market cap weighted indices can lead to over-investment in huge companies such as, for example, Naspers. However, market-cap weightings aren't the only way ETFs are constructed.— Nerina Visser, ETFSA
