What is an ETF?
An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is an investment vehicle (created by an investment company) which offers investors access to a publicly-traded security that typically tracks an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of assets just like an index fund.
Created in the 1990s, ETFs offer investors a hybrid investment vehicle that can provide the diversification of a mutual fund with the instant liquidity of a common stock.
The easiest way to grasp an ETF is to understand that it is a hybrid investment product, that is part mutual fund and part stock. A mutual fund is an investment vehicle that pools together investor money in order to invest in a basket of stocks, bonds, or some other asset class. But this is really where the similarities between ETFs and mutual funds end. ETFs are generally more lightweight and cheaper to structure and run than mutual funds and therefore typically enjoy lower expenses, and therefore have lower fees.
Unlike mutual funds, ETFs trade freely throughout the day on a stock exchange, just like a common stock. This makes them much more liquid than mutual funds. ETFs have become wildly popular in recent years due to their diversification (just like a mutual fund) without hefty fees and instant daily liquidity.
