CHOOSING THE RIGHT ETF PORTFOLIO

An Exchange-trade fund (“ETF”) is an investment fund that is traded on a stock exchange. ETF’s are usually designed to track a specified index and they hold assets such as stocks, bonds or commodities that match the index. By buying a unit in the ETF, an investor can get exposure to all of the assets held by the ETF.

ETFs offer a low-cost, highly efficient way for individual investors to build portfolios with more flexibility, transparency and lower costs than traditional mutual funds.
