What is Exchange-Traded Fund?
Loading the player... DEFINITION of 'Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF)' An ETF, or exchange-traded fund, is a marketable security that tracks an index, a commodity, bonds, or a basket of assets like an index fund.

ETFs typically have higher daily liquidity and lower fees than mutual fund shares, making them an attractive alternative for individual investors.
