Exchange Traded Funds

ETFs are open-ended investment funds, tracking a sector or index including commodities that are traded on a stock exchange. Typically an ETF trades at a price which is close to its net asset value, unlike investment trusts. This means that you can usually be confident that the price of an ETF very closely reflects the value of the investments it holds and sector or index it tracks. An ETF offers the benefits of a collective investment fund yet trades like a share on a stock exchange such as those in the FTSE 100 or FTSE All Share.

ETFs are characterised by low costs and stock-like features. They have been available in the US since 1993. Through Novia you may purchase ETFs available on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) sold by a number of different providers / manufacturers. For more information please see the below which has been provided by some of our ETF providers. Advisers seeking more information should speak to their Novia Regional Sales Manager or the ETF providers shown here.
