Introduction to ETFs

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) are a type of Exchange-Traded Product (ETP) that offer investors a way to pool their money in a fund that invests in stocks, bonds, or other assets. Unlike traditional mutual funds, ETFs are traded on stock exchanges, similar to individual stocks. This trading feature combines the diversified holdings of a mutual fund with the flexibility and liquidity of stock trading.
