What is an ETF?

ETF stands for exchange-traded fund. ETFs are a basket of investments (for example: stocks and bonds) bundled into a fund that’s traded on an exchange. That fund owns the underlying assets (i.e. stocks, bonds, or cash) and generally tracks an index – or group of investments that represent part of the market.
