Exchange traded products (ETPs) are investment products that track another investment instrument such as a commodity, currency, share price or interest rate

Exchange traded funds (ETFs) are investment products that track an index, commodity or basket of assets.

Exchange traded commodities (ETCs) work in a similar way, either tracking specific commodities or an index of diversified commodities such as agriculture.


  • Combine what would otherwise be several trades in a single transaction

  • Continuous pricing means you can trade at any time during market hours

  • ETFs have the same level of flexibility and transparency as shares

Why might you trade on ETPs?

  • To track a basket of shares or goods with a single transaction
  • ETPs can have capital gains tax advantages over funds and index trackers*
  • ETPs are sometimes the only way to access exotic markets​
