What are Exchange Traded Funds?

 

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) defines Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) as “listed investment products that track the performance of a group or ‘basket’ of Shares, Bonds or Commodities.” A more formal definition provides that ETFs are index-based products, with each ETF holding a portfolio of securities intended to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, generally correspond to the price and yield performance of the underlying benchmark index.

 

But what does this really mean? Simply put, ETFs replicate a specific index in terms of the return. On the one hand, they are similar to shares, in that they can be bought and sold in the same way on the JSE. But, unlike shares – which focus on a particular company – the key difference is that ETFs track a basket of instruments, giving the buyer of the ETF a specific diversified exposure.

It's crazy how many new ETFs there are this year alone.

 

Still no news from Sygnia and them dropping the prices on SYGWD etc :( If it doesn't change in the coming months I'll sell 'em all and move it to STXWDM or that Ashburton one. I'm already only contributing to STXWDM because of this. It's taking so long for them to make any changes (rebranding etc.) so sure if it is them or some regulatory body making things difficult.

 

Also, sweet-blou-tokkol came from ABSA's new ETF portal site and their factor investing ETFs. All talk...
