Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
Open ended investment funds traded directly on the stock exchange
Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are open ended investment funds that are traded directly on the stock exchange. The objective of an ETF is to track the performance of an underlying index or even to replicate the performance of a composition of different stocks.

key features
Diversification
As ETFs mimic the composition of a stock index, you gain exposure to a variety of securities without having to invest time and money into individual stocks.
Affordability
ETFs are traded directly on the exchange and passively managed, hence there is a zero sales charge and management fees are lower compared to actively managed funds like Unit Trusts.
Liquidity
The purchase and sale of ETFs between buyers and sellers is ongoing throughout a working day on the stock exchange, making it easy for you to liquidate your investments.
Reduced Volatility
Due to their broad equities exposure, ETFs are more resilient and can provide a buffer against extreme fluctuation or erosion of investment value, in the face of market volatility.

Benefits
Low Cost Diversification

Buying an ETF such as STI ETF (State Street) gives you instant exposure to 30 companies which constitute the index, without buying into each of the single stocks and incurring high brokerage fees.

Access Hard-to-Reach Sectors
With ETFs, you can now readily access otherwise hard to reach assets and sectors, such as gold and oil.
Page Transparency
Enjoy intra-day price transparency on their listed exchanges.

RISKS OF ETFs

ETFs are subject to the following types of risks:

  • MARKET RISK
    Investors are exposed to the price volatility of the underlying assets which the ETF tracks. Generally, where the price level of the underlying declines, the value of ETF declines as well.

  • FOREIGN EXCHANGE RISK
    If the traded currency of an ETF is different from the functional currency of the investor, the investor will be exposed to fluctuations in foreign exchange rates which may affect the returns on the ETF.
