Exchange Traded Funds
ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) are a flexible and simple way of diversifying your portfolio. Consider the fund to be a basket of industry or regionally-related stocks, giving you sector or industry-wide exposure.
IG offers hundreds of low-commission CFDs on ETFs, covering regions, countries, commodities, metals and energies and sectors such as property.
So, for example, if you bought a CFD for ETC Silver, you would gain exposure to a selection of stocks related to the silver industry, from mining through to retail.
CFDs on ETFs make it easy to broaden your portfolio without exposing yourself to the potentially volatile fortunes of any one particular stock.
Because an ETF trades like a share, you can trade it at any time the market is open, and has no expiry. For further information about our ETF CFDs, please see our example of an ETF CFD trade.
CFDs are leveraged products. CFD trading may not be suitable for everyone and can result in losses that exceed your initial investment, so please ensure that you fully understand the risks involved.
