ETF stands for Exchange-Traded Fund, which is a type of investment fund that is traded on stock exchanges, similar to stocks.

ETFs are designed to track the performance of a specific index or a basket of assets, such as stocks, bonds, or commodities. They offer investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of assets with relatively low fees and easy access to a variety of markets.

One of the key advantages of ETFs is their flexibility, as they can be bought and sold throughout the trading day at market prices. ETFs also provide investors with the ability to invest in specific sectors, regions, or asset classes, and offer exposure to a wide range of investment strategies, such as value or growth investing.

ETFs have become increasingly popular over the years due to their low cost, ease of use, and flexibility, making them a popular investment vehicle for both retail and institutional investors.

Which is better: an ETF or a mutual fund?

If you invest in an index ETF or index mutual fund you should be able to beat most active investors.

The advantage of ETFs as compared to mutual funds is their flexibility although mutual funds are not that bad as well.

Personally, I prefer ETFs like Nifty ETF (Nifty Bees).
