ETFs are financial products that allow you to buy and sell baskets of stocks and bonds in a single transaction, just as if they were ordinary shares.

ETF is the acronym for Exchange-Traded Funds, or in French a listed fund.

ETFs are therefore transferable securities: they are listed and traded continuously, so they can be bought and sold on the markets. ETFs offer all the advantages of mutual funds, as they allow you to invest in several stocks through a single one, but they also have the elegance of being much cheaper than actively managed funds.
