An exchange-traded fund (ETF) is an investment fund that trades on the stock market.

An ETF holds assets such as shares, commodities, bonds, etc.

Most ETFs track an index (e.g. the Top-40 index).

One advantage of ETFs is their low costs.

ETFs trade like normal shares.

The price of an ETF rises and falls during the day as it is traded.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Simon Brown (Financial Educator at Just One Lap), Candice Paine (Strategist and consultant at Satrix) and Helena Conradie (CEO at Satrix) for his weekly personal finance feature.

Candice Paine, Satrix

Simon Brown, Just One Lap
