What is an Exchange Traded Product (ETP)?

An exchange-traded product (ETP) is basically a type of security that tracks securities, index or other financial instruments. ETPs trade on exchanges similar to stocks, which means their prices can fluctuate from day to day and from day to day. However, the prices of ETPs are derived from the underlying investments they track.

ETPs are financial products that can be bought and sold on the stock market during the day and provide the same return to the investor as an index or asset that is the basis. The main features of ETPs are that they are low cost, can be bought and sold during the day like shares, follow the value of an index or an asset, and offer easy access to hard-to-reach assets, especially for individual investors.
