ETF

An exchange-traded fund, ETF for short, is an investment fund that lets investors buy a large basket of individual stocks or bonds in one purchase.

Since the first American Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) was launched in 1993, the development of ETF has come a long way.

An ETF is a collection of stocks or bonds that may be purchased for one price. Unlike mutual funds, ETFs may be bought and sold during the entire trading day just like a stocks on an exchange. Many popular ETFs track well-known stock indexes like the S&P 500. Nowadays, investors are generally aware that ETF is an indispensable financial tool. As of the end of October 2020, the amount of index products worldwide is about $10 trillion, and it is estimated that it will exceed $12 trillion by 2023.

There are several differences between ETFs and mutual funds. Whereas mutual funds tend to have human mutual fund managers who actively trade stocks in and out of the fund based on which ones they predict will go up or down, the vast majority of ETFs are unmanaged by humans.

While investing in stocks is great, you may be too busy to do so yourself. Even I am too lazy to pick out stocks just like Im too lazy to pick out my clothes.

One method of managing volatility risk is following hold-till-maturity (HTM). This concept can be practised by investing directly in bonds. On maturity of the bond, money flows back to the investor and returns are not dependent on market conditions at that point in time. In mutual funds, fixed maturity plans (FMPs) work on this principle. If it is a three-year FMP, on maturity, all the bonds in the portfolio mature and there is no market/volatility risk.
