Invest in exchange-traded funds

An exchange-traded fund (ETF) spreads your money across a group of investments, giving you instant diversification.

ETFs on Sharesies

This is only a fraction of the ETFs you can invest in on the Sharesies platform.

Before you invest in an ETF, read its prospectus or product disclosure statement to find out what it invests in, and what management fees it charges.

Why invest in ETFs?

  • Diversification

    You might have heard the saying ‘don’t put all your eggs in one basket’. When you invest in an ETF, your money is split across a range of investments instead of put into just one company.

  • Accessibility

    Get access to companies or industries—like space exploration!—that you might not be able to invest in directly.

  • Transparency

    Because they’re traded on an exchange, you get visibility on share price movements and can sell your shares whenever there are interested buyers.
