Term Definition
Exchange Traded Fund (ETF)

ETFs are portfolio investment products that are admitted to listing or trading on a regulated exchange. An ETF provides investors with exposure to a diversified basket of shares or other financial instruments. ETFs aim to replicate the performance of a specific index; this index can be a blue chip, a regional, or a sector index. The index type is not just limited to shares and may include bond indexes and other types of sophisticated index. ETFs are traded in the same way as any other share. These instruments can be used by investors as a hedging tool or as an investment product.
