Exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are passive funds that provide investors a direct exposure to a particular stock, bond or alternatives index such as the FTSE 100 or UK Property Index. ETF portfolios consist of securities that are traded in the market, just like other open-end funds.

However, the big difference an ETF and other open-ended funds are they are listed on the stock exchange and traded like stocks, which enable ETF to be bought and sold throughout the trading day. ETFs have another significant advantage, they charges a lower annual management fees than other tracker funds; as little as 0.07% per year.
