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

Why Invest in ETFs with Omba?

When investing in ETFs, you are gaining diversified exposure across major indices and the costs of investing is much lower since you are able to buy all the stocks in an ETF, rather than purchasing stocks individually. 

Investors only need to execute one transaction to buy and one transaction to sell which leads to lower brokerage fees than would have typically been incurred for each individual trade. 

Direct bonds often have high mark-ups for smaller orders and ETFs often offer more liquidity than your average bond.
