Features of Exchange traded funds:

  • Replicate the structure and movement of an index;

  • Unlike mutual funds, exchange traded funds are traded as shares;

  • Exchange traded funds are generally more liquid than individual securities/assets in the index;

  • Save transaction costs for structuring such a portfolio;

  • Have significantly lower management costs than mutual funds;

  • Exchange traded funds do not guarantee accurate follow-up of the index, but the fund's management aims to achieve the closest possible result;

  • Enable investors to gain exposure, for example to different companies and commodities, by providing a relatively high degree of diversification.
