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. Please remember, the value of your investments, and the income derived from them, may go down as well as up. You may not get back all the money that you invest.

Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) including ETFs, ETCs and ETNs track a wide variety of underlying investments, some of which may be complex in nature and involve leverage, shorting or a high degree of volatility. It is therefore important that you read the Prospectus or Fact Sheet (available on the issuers' websites) prior to investing and ensure that you understand how it is structured and the associated risks. 

The protections available under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) may not be available for all types of ETPs domiciled outside of the UK.
