ETFs trading

Discover a new way of investing with our range of exchange traded fund CFDs

 

 

 

What is an ETF?

ETFs are investment products made up of a selection or ‘basket’ of related assets. They are designed to track the performance of indices, sectors, commodities, bonds or currencies.

As investment funds, ETFs provide exposure to a portfolio of financial instruments, but have the added benefit of being traded just like shares on a stock exchange.

How can you trade ETFs with IG?

IG offers a wide range of contracts for difference, or CFDs, based on ETFs. These CFDs precisely track the underlying price of the ETF, meaning you can trade on the price of the ETF without needing to actually own the ETF itself.

See our ETF costs and details within the CFD shares list.
