An ETF, or Exchange Traded Fund, is an investment fund that tracks an index, like the JSE All Share Index.  Essentially ETFs are a “basket” of shares, rather than a single stock, so by buying ETFs investors are exposed to multiple companies while simply buying one share.

ETFs are traded much like stocks through the stock exchange, but because of their diversified nature they have lower risk and generally reduced volatility.
