What's an ETF?

Rounding it up

  • ETFs, or exchange-traded funds, are an investment vehicle that bundles multiple assets to trade as a single product on a financial market.

  • There are thousands of ETFs to choose from; they can vary in how they’re managed, their geographic/industrial focus, and more.

  • For active investors who’d rather hand-pick their stocks, bonds, and other securities, ETFs aren’t always the best choice.

  • But for passive investors who want a relatively simple, highly liquid, and fairly low-cost investment tool, ETFs might be the way to go.
