What is an ETF?
An ETF is a type of investment fund that’s designed to track the performance of a stockmarket or other financial index.
The iShares S&P 500 ETF, for example, tracks 500 of the biggest US companies including the likes of Apple, Amazon and Tesla, also known as the S&P 500 Index.
ETFs are bought and sold on the stock market like shares, hence their full name of exchange‐traded funds.
