What am I investing in on Stash?
ETFs make up the majority of the investments currently available on Stash. ETF stands for Exchange-Traded Funds. An ETF is a basket of investments (for example: stocks and bonds) bundled into funds that are traded on an exchange. That fund owns the underlying assets (i.e. stocks, bonds, cash, or even physical gold bars!) and tracks an index – or group of companies with something in common.
If you’re interested in investing in specific industries such as technology, you can invest in an entire group of tech stocks as opposed to choosing just one company to purchase their shares. And when you purchase fractional shares, you can build a diversified portfolio with as little as $5.
Stash picks a select group of the thousands of ETFs and stocks available, based on factors like low fees, managed risk, and historical performance.
