The purpose of this post is to introduce an asset class sometime unknown by investors, ETPs (Exchange Traded Product).
ETPs allow you to trade stocks, indices, currencies, commodities and even cryptocurrencies … in a regulated environment, with products that are available directly from a sharedealing account (like FreeTrade). Most of the time with a low minimum amount.
The term ETP actually includes ETFs (which you may know), ETCs (Exchange Traded Commmodities / Currency) and ETNs (Exchange Traded Note).
Out of Leverage & Short ETP that does not match with the target of FreeTrade to offer long term investment solution and not “active trading” solution… ETP are innovative product and may offer alternative solutions that ETFs cannot cover.
I will be happy to answer your questions regarding this type of product.
I will not mention any issuer or specific product here, only answering generic questions.
