ETF and shares: what are the main differences? What is better?

The ETF is becoming popular in Brazil as an investment product aimed at those who want to start their life as an investor in shares but do not have the time or desire to delve deeper into the study of these assets. And the tokenization of assets is present in this innovation.

It is true that index funds are not something new in Brazil, they have been operating for around 20 years, but it is natural that their rise was slow while qualified and safe information about investments – such as that generated by BLOCKBR – was little and /or inaccessible.

Currently, ETFs arouse the curiosity of those who want to invest in shares in the fastest way and without the obligation to manage shares individually.

But are index funds more advantageous than stock funds and securities that you can buy individually?

And where does the cryptomarket for tokens and digital currencies appear in this story?

BLOCKBR, a company that develops tokenization infrastructure, will show you the differences between these assets to help you make good investment choices!

CORPORATE ACTION: WHAT IS IT AND WHAT TYPES OF ACTIONS EXIST

Shares are the smallest possible part of a company’s purchase that can be traded on the market and are issued with the purpose of raising funds for the company’s projects.

The investor studies the options, purchases shares – stock picking – and becomes a shareholder of the company with rights and duties according to the type of share. Management is carried out by the investor himself, which requires in-depth knowledge of the market.

WHAT TYPES OF CORPORATE SHARES?

  • Ordinary share: gives the right to vote at meetings and share in profits and distribution of assets distribution of assets in the event of liquidation or bankruptcy of the company;
  • Preferred share: does not have voting rights, but has priority over common shares in receiving dividends and distributing assets.

INDEX FUND: WHAT IS IT AND WHAT TYPES OF ETF EXIST

The ETF or exchange-traded fund is a fund that represents performance indices of several financial assets combined, obtaining diversified exposure to a set of financial assets with just one transaction.

However, it should be noted that ETF is a basket of performances and not products; the investor does not have the right to own the assets reflected in the fund, only to earn profits (or absorb losses) based on the results of their performance.

WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF ETF?

  • Variable income ETFs: they are known as stock ETFs, but they also include cryptocurrency ETFs, fiat currencies, commodities and other variable income products;
  • Fixed income ETF: index funds based on the profitability of public or private fixed income securities.

STOCK FUNDS: WHAT THEY ARE AND HOW THEY WORK

As the name suggests, the stock investment fund is a consortium of investors who invest in Bovespa based on management that monitors the stock market and makes the best investment choices.

Before investing in equity funds, it is important that investors know the fund’s strategy and the risks involved to understand whether this type of investment aligns with their investor profile.

ETF, SHARES OR FUNDS: WHEN EACH OPTION IS WORTH

The three types of investment on the Stock Exchange have common characteristics.

On the other hand, some aspects must be considered to define which (or which) of them are the most suitable for each investor.

INDEPENDENCE TO INVEST

If you want to manage investments in shares, stock picking is the only option, as it allows you to research and make choices. However, it is important to highlight that each share has a performance directly linked to the company’s market situation.

Therefore, extra care must be taken both in studies and at the right time to buy or sell shares.

SAFETY FOR BEGINNERS

The composition of equity funds is defined by professional and experienced managers. The ETF fund is created and distributed by financial institutions. Therefore, they are the ideal alternatives for those who want to invest in shares without worrying about managing choices.

The point of attention, in both cases, is to research the reputation of the companies offering the funds.

Tokenization in the stock market

PRODUCT DIVERSITY

When purchasing shares directly, it is possible to diversify according to different criteria, however this is a complex and time-consuming job, the market is dynamic in nature and good opportunities are missed.

In funds (stocks and ETFs), diversity is an important objective to offer products with characteristics for all audiences – cryptocurrency ETF, sector of activity or commodity, for example.

TOKENIZATION AND EQUITY FUNDS MARKET

The tokenization of everything is also on the Stock Exchange!

  • BITH11 and QBTC11, backed by bitcoin;
  • ETHE11 and QETH11, backed by ether;
  • HASH11, backed by a basket of digital currencies.
