What to invest in
Investments to get you started
No matter what your style, E*TRADE has investment products to suit you. These are particularly worth considering if you’re new to the market:
E*TRADE’s SharePacks are designed for first time investors. It is a portfolio of 8 shares updated weekly, chosen by a consensus of analyst recommendations, from different industries.
Fund managers invest in a diverse portfolio of shares on behalf of their investors.
Exchange Traded Funds are just like managed funds, except they’re listed on the stock market. You buy and sell shares in the fund itself, so it’s another easy way to get started at minimal cost.
Investing in shares
Of course, the most basic way to invest is to buy shares in a company you’re interested in. Remember, E*TRADE gives you free access to the widest range of independent research analyst recommendations of any Australian online broker, so you can research your investments with confidence. You can also trade Global Shares on certain international exchanges.
More advanced investments
Once you're confident with trading, E*TRADE also offers investments like Options and Warrants, and Contracts for Difference (CFDs). You can also borrow to invest through a Share Investment Loan, participate in Initial Public offerings (IPOs) or self-manage your Superannuation fund.
