Exchange traded funds have gained popularity as investors look for a cheap and easy way to invest by tracking the index of a particular market or sector.

ETFs have very low running costs compared to funds because no active manager is involved, and the average total expense ratio, according to iShares, of a bond ETF is 0.32 per cent.

The range of indices accessible through ETFs is enormous and continues to expand, from the FTSE 100 and Vietnam stock exchange to commercial property and thematic indices such as clean water.

Each month Money Observer magazine provides a regular commentary and full performance details for UK-listed ETFs and exchange traded commodities in our AnalyseMoney section. We’ve also examined in-depth the pros and cons of investing in ETFs and look at the best and worst performing sections each month to give you the support to make the best returns.
