  • An ETF is a collection of securities that can include shares, bonds, commodities, and currencies
  • ETFs might include Australian or international assets
  • You can buy and sell units in an ETF the same way you purchase shares through a stockbroker or via an online share trading platform.
  • You usually purchase units in an ETF, not its underlying investments
  • The unit price of an ETF fluctuates during the day as it’s bought and sold on an exchange
  • ETFs often have low management expense ratios (MERs) or fees
