Choose from over 1,400 Funds and 1,000 ETFs from international managers.
When you invest in funds and ETFs you’re investing in a collection of assets (e.g. stocks, bonds, property). Both offer a variety of options, giving you the benefit of diversifying your investment without having to put in hours of research into specific stocks. Investing in funds & ETFs can help to reduce risk in your portfolio and it is also an efficient way to invest in specific themes or regions starting with small amounts of money.
For more information on the range of funds and ETFs, the differences between funds and ETFs, and other investment approaches such as passive and active investment please check our Glossary below and 'Investment Guide' section of the website.
