Exchange-Traded Funds ETFs are in the news for another reason as well – they are expected to get a major boost as the central government will be divesting from large public- sector undertakings (PSUs) via the ETF route in the near future. At Consumer Voice, we have always recommended investing in diverse portfolios. A simple cricket analogy explains it clearly enough – go for the singles and doubles rather than aiming for sixes at the risk of being caught. This means that an investor should allocate capital to different investments to spread out the risk, rather than put everything down on a single stock or investment.

ETFs for small investors – one fund, many portfolios

While there are numerous types of investments to choose from, an investor needs a substantial amount of capital to build a diversified portfolio. This capital requirement can be a particular challenge for small investors, as they may have minimal savings/earnings to invest. Here, exchange-traded funds (ETFs) make it possible to have a diversified portfolio with relatively low investment thresholds. ETFs also have a number of other features that make them ideal investment vehicles for the young investor. Interestingly, the yields from investments in ETFs can, at times, match outputs of several high-risk investments.
