5 FTSE ETFs and what they cost to invest in

Home > Investing > 5 FTSE ETFs and what they cost to invest in

FTSE ETFs are a fund that tracks the FTSE index that you can buy as easily as buying normal shares, by investing in all the constituents of the FTSE 100. One of the main differences (and key costs though) is that there is an ongoing management charge as even though they are passive investments, they still have to be actively managed to ensure accurate tracking.
