How to invest
ETF Securities’ ETPs issue securities that trade like equities and are available to trade via ordinary brokerage accounts or investment platforms.
ETF Securities’ ETPs are generally considered to be suitable for investment via investment vehicles such as ISAs and SIPPs.
The price of securities will depend on the current value of the underlying commodity or index on which the ETP is based and will also include various fees and charges. Please see below for further details of the applicable fees and charges.
Fees & Charges
Fees and charges are mainly split into three types:
This refers to the fees subtracted to cover the cost of operating the product.
This refers to the price a market maker* charges an investor when they buy or sell an ETP on a stock exchange. This is often quoted in basis points – one hundredth of a percent – so a 10 basis point spread would indicate a 0.1% difference between the market maker’s bid (the price at which an investor would sell), and the price the market maker offers (the price at which an investor would buy).
A market maker is a specialist in providing prices for investors to buy or sell at.
This refers to the charges exacted by the broker or platform for executing the requested order.
