Diversification & Flexibility with
Traded Funds

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) offer a simple way to buy a diversified portfolio of investments.4 Like mutual funds, ETFs are a basket of securities. However, ETFs are traded on stock exchanges, can be traded throughout the day, and have a fluctuating value like stocks. ETFs are typically passively managed and track a specific index, such as the S&P 500. ETFs involve risk, as do all investments.

At E*TRADE, you can trade every ETF sold, plus over 80 commission-free ETFs2 from leading independent providers
