What is an ETF?

An ETF is an index fund that is traded on an exchange such as Xetra. An ETF is a basket of different stocks. A so-called index or benchmark. A part of a DAX ETF is therefore z. B. all 30 DAX stocks with the correct weighting. Large indices such as the MSCI World even track more than 1,600 global stocks. This spreads the investor's risk massively. If, for example, a company goes bankrupt, this has little or no effect on the price of the ETF and the resulting return. ETFs are very inexpensive. The total cost of most funds is less than 0.5% per year. The annual costs, also known as TER (Total Expense Ratio), are not debited from your custody account or clearing account, but are automatically priced into the price of the ETF fund by the provider every day. Because they can be traded on stock exchanges such as Xetra, Tradegate, Boerse Stuttgart, Berlin, Frankfurt, Nasdaq, NYSE or London, they are very liquid. That means they can be bought or sold practically anytime.

What is a savings plan?

An ETF savings plan or ETF savings plans are offered by banks. This enables investors to buy an ETF on a monthly basis. The broker's customer defines the savings plan interval (e.g. monthly, bi-monthly, etc.), the savings amount and the ETF. Most savings plans require a minimum of 25 or 50 euros. Some banks also have an upper limit for each savings plan (500-1000 euros). The bank will automatically deduct the savings amount from the checking account and buy the fund shares and then transfer them to the deposit. The investor can choose the ETF from a selection of usually a few hundred savings plan-capable ETFs from the bank. The idea of ​​an ETF savings plan is to save money over a longer period of time. The periods of time are often years to decades. Many parents already set up savings plans for their children, as the compound interest effect can increase significantly over the longer period and with it the overall return of the ETF. The depository providers have different fee models for a savings plan. Some banks charge a fixed fee, e.g. B. 1.50 euros, others a percentage commission based on the amount saved. You can find out which providers are available and which fees are charged here.
