We offer this to make it as easy as possible for you to diversify your portfolio. Since their introduction in 1993, ETFs have become very popular, mainly because the product offers:

Lower fees: ETFs, which are passively managed, have much lower costs compared to actively managed funds.ETFs have the trading behaviour and liquidity of stocks on the market, allowing for easy buying and selling.
