Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)


An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is a security that is listed and traded on a stock exchange, similar to a stock. ETFs are made up of a mixture of securities such as stocks, bonds, commodities etc and typically track the performance of an index or a certain market area.

  • Trades on an exchange like a stock
  • Made up of a variety of securities
  • Track the performance of an index or market area
  • Typically have lower fees than mutual funds 



Stocks are securities that give you ownership in a corporation, offering greater potential return when a company does well through capital appreciation and dividend payments, but greater potential risk as well. Stocks offer a wide variety of investment options, including common and preferred shares.



Companies and governments issue bonds to the public to raise capital to fund their projects with a set repayment date. Bonds may offer lower risk than stocks, but usually a lower return as well.
