An ETF, short for “exchange traded fund,” is an investment fund that holds assets such as stocks, bonds, or commodities such as gold bars, or invests in a collection of stocks that track a market index like the S&P 500. The ownership of an ETF is divided into shares that are owned by shareholders who receive a share of the profits, such as interest or dividends.
