Following on from the Royal Commission, we have had many clients ask us what are the key differences between Shares, Exchange Traded Products (ETPs) and Traditional Managed Funds?
In a nutshell:
- Shares are listed and traded on the market;
- ETPs are listed baskets of shares or other assets & traded on the market; and
- Managed funds are unlisted baskets of shares or other assets managed internally by fund managers. The relevant fund manager buys or sells assets, usually on markets, and reports on the overall value of the investments.
We attach a Summary Comparison Table outlining the main differences that we thought would interest you.
