What are ETFs?

There are some important differences between index tracking funds and ETFs as well as between the different types of ETFs, such as ETFs trading in commodities. Find out if these funds maybe right for you.

Benefits and risks

ETFs normally aim to follow the performance of an index or commodity, but they are traded like shares on the stock exchange and they have some unique benefits and risks.

The value of investments can fall as well as rise, so you may get back less than you invest. For more important information please see below.

Understanding dealing and transaction charges

  • Dealing ETFs through Fidelity Personal Investing - We deal in ETFs on your behalf through a third-party broker on the London Stock Exchange. We do this by combining all of the deals placed through our fund supermarket and passing them to our third-party broker (JP Morgan) for trading once a day. Although ETFs are priced in real time on our fund supermarket, the price you actually get will be the price at the time of that daily trade.
  • Fund dealing and cut-off time - ETFs are priced at 12:15pm and the cut off time is 11am.* It is also worth noting that for ETFs the actual price may vary as deals are traded on a stock exchange by an executing broker.
  • All ETF trades incur a charge of 0.10% per individual ETF deal - It’s important to note that if you switch from one ETF to another, you will pay the 0.10% dealing fee twice – once for selling your original holding and another for buying the new one.
  • Bid-offer spread - Most ETFs have two prices – the one you buy at (the offer price) and the one you sell at (the bid price). The result is effectively a transaction charge for investing in the fund.

*Please note that on Christmas and New Years Eve, the cut off time remains 11am, but deals will be placed at around 11:30am.
