Exchange Traded Funds

Introduction to ETFs

Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are collective funds that trade on a stock exchange. They are designed to track the movements of an index, commodity or basket of assets. They will do this by taking positions in the underlying securities that make up an index in the same weights that they appear in that index.

ETFs are offered on a vast range of indices and commodities and usually have a lower annual management fee than other types of collective investment fund. They are also bought and sold in the same way as normal shares, but because they are a basket of stocks like a fund, you do not pay stamp duty on the purchase of ETFs, as stamp duty has already been paid on the underlying investments held by the ETF. However you will be subject to tax on any gains made from your investment in an ETF.*

*Tax laws may change. If you have any queries on taxation in relation to your investments please speak to a qualified tax advisor.

Risk Warning

The price and value of investments and their income fluctuates: you may get back less than the amount you invested. The tax treatment of investments is subject to tax law and HMRC practice which are subject to change.
