Most popular Core Selection ETFs 2021

At DEGIRO, we offer you the possibility to invest in a selection of exchange-traded funds (ETFs), also known as trackers, for which the commissions are on us. (Please consider our fair use policy. Currency, external product and spread costs may apply.) We offer this to make it as easy as possible for you to diversify your portfolio. Since their introduction in 1993, ETFs have become very popular, mainly because the product offers:

Diversification: One ETF can mimic the returns of an index, market segment(s) or investment style(s).

Lower fees: ETFs, which are passively managed, have much lower costs compared to actively managed funds.

Trades like a stock: ETFs have the trading behaviour and liquidity of stocks on the market, allowing for easy buying and selling.
