What is an ETF? - Raiz Invest

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are
one of the fastest growing investment products in the world, offering investors
a simple and cost-effective way to achieve diversification in their investment

ETFs blend the benefits of both
managed funds and shares. ETFs offer efficient, low-cost diversification,
combined with flexibility and liquidity of a share.

ETFs can be bought and sold on a
stock exchange like shares. And, like managed index funds, they contain a
diversified portfolio of securities designed to track specific stock and bond
indices, like the S&P/ASX200 a measure of the Australian stock market. This
means investors can use ETFs to gain the exposure and diversification they
want, quickly and simply.  ETF shareholders are also entitled to interest
or dividends paid by the share or bonds that make up the ETF.

We at Raiz have done the hard
work for you, have selected a basket of widely traded ETF’s that are quoted on
the Australian Securities Exchange, the ones that are designed to match
well-known benchmarks and combined them into 6 different portfolios ready for
your selection. For more information on Raiz fees, click here.
