About this Event

What is an ETF?

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is a type of security that involves a collection of securities—such as stocks—that often tracks an underlying index, although they can invest in any number of industry sectors or use various strategies.

To those unfamiliar, investing in ETFs can seem complicated and confusing. But an ETF is a marketable security, you can buy and sell them through the stock market just like an ordinary share.

ETF investing has been gaining traction

Often touted as a low-cost and efficient way to get instant diversification, ETFs have been increasingly popular. Some well-known ETFs like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY), which tracks the S&P 500 Index, gave a return of more than 70% in just 5 years.

Investment guru Warren Buffett himself has also specifically recommended ETFs as a way to boost retirement savings.

This comprehensive workshop we're having in partnership with FSMOne will demystify what ETFs are and equip you with the knowledge to enhance your portfolio.

✔ What is an ETF?

✔ What types of ETFs are available for retail investors

✔ How can ETFs enhance your portfolio

✔ How to construct your own diversified ETF portfolio from scratch

✔ Trending Global ETF investing ideas every investor should know
