Definition of exchange traded fund
Exchange traded fund
An exchange traded fund allows small investors to track indices and buy into them through shares and units. Shares are available on the open market and can be bought and sold for cash, just like the shares in an investment trust. By purchasing shares investors can, in effect, buy precise amounts of the index they want to track. Often referred to as an ETF.
