What are ETFs?

  • ETFs, or Exchange Traded Funds, are themed investments that offer a simple way to diversify your portfolio. Just like shares, ETFs are traded on the stock market. The difference is, when you buy an ETF, you’re investing in a bundle of companies that represent a particular market or industry (e.g. technology or healthcare) rather than a specific company.

    Every ETF in CommSec Pocket has a theme. Explore all the available options below, covering different industries, markets or countries.

ETF management fee
Each ETF provider charges a management fee for providing the ETF to investors. The fee is applied to your investment per year and varies depending on the ETF. It’s not an out-of-pocket fee.
