Society as a whole benefits when everyone has an equal opportunity to be what they want to be and do what they want to do. Recent studies have shown us the data backs it up too - gender diversity has a positive impact on company success. Are you passionate about these companies that make it one of their core missions to promote gender equality? Invest in Europe’s first ETF to focus on companies leading the field in gender equality, from having women in power, to equal pay, and a strong gender balance in the workplace.
ETFs are not only a great way to gain exposure to major stock market indices, like the S&P 500 or FTSE All-Share, but also enable you to access more niche markets or specific sectors.
Exchange-traded funds are exempt from the 0.50% stamp duty. Hold your ETFs as part of an ISA or SIPP tax wrapper, and you can access additional tax benefits.
When buying ETFs, you invest in a basket of stocks that will mirror how a specific index performs without buying all the stocks individually.
ETFs are less management fees involved. They also tend to be less costly than purchasing individual shares - fewer transactions, less trading costs.
