What is an ETF?

ETFs have become a popular investment option that provides an easy-to-use, low cost way to invest. They offer diversified exposure and contain a portfolio of securities designed to track a specific index or market sector, or produce a specific outcome. ETFs are exchange traded—you can buy and sell ETFs like any other stock on an exchange.

ETFs can be traded through a self-directed account or financial advisor, such as CIBC Investor’s Edge or CIBC Wood Gundy Advisor.
