What is an Exchange-Traded Fund?

Think of an Exchange-Traded Fund, or ETF, as a collection of various investments that are all used for a specific purpose. These collections can include stocks, bonds, or a mix of both. Many people choose to invest in ETFs because they can be a good way to diversify a portfolio. When you have a diverse portfolio, it can help to reduce some of the risks inherent in purchasing shares of individual stocks or bonds.

For a complete list of the ETFs we offer, go to your Invest page in the app and tap the Invest tile. You can also see the full list by clicking this link.
