ETFs v ETCs

An ETFs (Exchange Traded Fund) are index tracking funds that are traded on an exchange such as the London Stock Exchange. They combine the ready-made diversification of unit trusts with the simplicity of shares. They are eligible for ISAs but attract no stamp duty.

These funds consist of a selection or ‘basket’ of related assets designed to track the performance of an entire index, geographical market, industry sector, commodity, bond or currency.

The investment fund owns the underlying assets in proportion to their weighting and trades close to its net asset value. It divides ownership of those assets into shares and shareholders are entitled to a proportion of the funds profits, such as earned interest or dividends paid.

An ETC (Exchange Traded Commodity) is a variation on the ETF. It’s an investment vehicle (asset backed bonds) that track the performance of an underlying commodity or basket of commodities i.e. energy, precious metals, softs and agricultural products
