“I’m trying to diversify my investments so I thought I’d give baskets a shot. I wanted to start using a Tax Free Savings Account but I thought it would be much cooler if I could keep my eye on it. The baskets are really innovative.”

At a first glance an ETF might look a bit like its distant relative: a unit trust. But unlike its cousin, this sexy little portfolio of different shares, bonds, and other instruments, is single and ready to mingle – it can be traded on stock exchanges (like the JSE) as one instrument. The most common ETF’s are designed to track the performance of a market benchmark or index by mirroring the makeup of that index in a portfolio.
“I’d been looking for a way to fund my travel dreams and this seemed like a decent shot. ETF’s offer exposure to local equities and the Satrix 40 was, at the time, by far the easiest way to have a diversified portfolio with low costs.”
A short quote about why unit trusts are epic. I love hands off investing! No more than 2-3 lines.
ETF’s vs Unit Trusts
The main difference between an ETF and a unit trust is that ETF’s are listed on the stock exchange so you can buy or sell them just like a share.
That means you can see the prices all day and the only cost to you in buying them is the brokerage fee (with EasyEquities that’s a market low of 0.25%, whoop whoop!). In contrast, unit trusts are not listed on the stock exchange and prices can only be set at the end of the day. Unit trust investors also have to dish out an upfront fee of up to 2% and because most unit trusts are actively managed they tend to have higher costs than ETF’s, which passively track their index.
“Awesome to see EasyEquities have now added retirement annuities to their platform. If you’re not investing with them you are doing investing wrong!”
“Just performed my first IPO on @EasyEquities for the new @CoreShares Global ETFs. Woohoo! So #easy!”
