What is an ETF?
An ETF (Exchange Traded Fund) is a fund which trades on an exchange. ETFs provide a simple, cost effective way to gain a diversified exposure to a basket of stocks or bonds without having to go and buy every single one yourself – or pay large fees to a portfolio manager.
Compared to a mutual fund which is active and where the portfolio manager is constantly trying to select stocks that will do better than others, the role of an ETF is more ‘passive,’ since they move with the whole index.
The result – you have the opportunity to invest in a very diversified portfolio and if a large company enters the exchange, you are automatically investing in them, without purchasing their stocks individually.
What are the types of ETFs?
Equity ETFs – invest in global equities (stock) markets such as the S&P500, FTSE100, Euro Stoxx or Asian markets.
Bond ETFs – might include government bonds, corporate bonds, and state and local bonds—called municipal bonds.
Thematic ETFs – track a particular theme or industry such as cloud computing, cyber security or healthcare.
Commodity ETCs – invest in commodities including crude oil or gold.
Inverse ETFs – use derivatives to benefit from the decline in value of the underlying index.
Are ETFs a good investment?
ETFs can be a good investment because they give you an effective way to invest in a number of assets without having to buy the stocks individually – and they typically come with very low fees for trading.
How much should I invest in ETFs?
There is no minimum amount required to begin investing in ETFs, you just require enough to cover the price of one unit and any associated commissions or fees. Omba Advisory can help you create a strong and diversified investment portfolio and offer a range of investment solution from UCITS funds for retails investors to tailored portfolios for High New Worth investors.
Are ETFs safer than stocks?
Exchange Traded Funds will pose risks just like stocks. Risk factors will depend on your risk appetite but ETFs can help reduce risks such as concentration risk where you have all your investments in a single stock or company which may perform badly whereas a global ETF would bring diversity to a portfolio.
Do Exchange Traded Funds pay out Dividends?
This will depend on whether the ETF is setup as a Distribution or Accumulation structure. A Distribution ETF will pay out dividends to holders as cash whereas Accumulation ETFs will not pay a cash dividend and will reinvest the proceeds in the ETF.
