For more information on ETFs, please refer to the ETF introduction page.

Stock Exchange Index ETFs

Stock Index ETFs contain shares of stock indices, such as the FTSE MIB, Dow Jones, S&P 500, Euro Stoxx 50. These particular ETFs usually include a selection of shares belonging to such an index so as to offer similar, double or triple the results of their performance or its opposite.

European Index ETFs

European indices can be of various kinds but are generally referred to as stock shares. Among them are those that relate to the main stock exchanges such as those in London, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid.

World Index ETFs
