Exchange Traded Funds
SEB Equities assists clients to trade a range of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) across several markets. ETFs are open-ended index funds listed on the exchange and traded just like a stock. They enable investors to enjoy a highly efficient method of gaining broad exposure to stock markets in different countries, regions, sectors and styles as well as accessing fixed income and commodity markets.
ETFs are highly regulated investment vehicles which ensure high investor protection. Among the benefits of ETFs is the transparency they provide to investors in terms of market exposure at any given time, liquidity and cost efficiency. ETFs are continuously tradable during market hours and can be traded at NAV. In addition, they provide diversification by giving exposure to a broad basket of securities instantaneously.
ETFs are used by investors for a variety of purposes including liquidity management, tactical allocation, risk management, portfolio diversification, transition management and increasing portfolio liquidity.
