How to buy Australia’s first Islamic ETFs
Islamic ETFs are a new investment product that is Sharia-compliant, which become the factors why investors choose to invest in Islamic ETFs. The launch of the Hejaz Equities Fund (ASX: ISLM) and Hejaz Property Fund (ASX: HJZP) both makes it to be the first Sharia-compliant ETFs on the ASX. They offer convenience and comfort for customers knowing that their money is invested properly by avoiding engaging with companies that have excessive debts and support haram products and services, such as alcohol, pork products, and pornography. Investing in an Islamic ETF could be smart if you’re motivated by ethical concerns, seek increased diversification, or tap into the growing global demand for Halal products and services.
What to consider when trading ETFs?
1. ETFs can be purchased and sold anytime during the exchange trading hours
During the opening and closing hours, the markets tend to be more volatile. As such, trading after and before the 15 minutes of the day is the best time when the market has less activity, resulting in wider spreads between bids and offers. Furthermore, it is important to understand the underlying exposure of an ETF. For example, holding ETFs with underlying exposures on the US market, consider trading when the markets are open, due to the value of the ETF being easier to calculate and the bid/offer spread tighter.
2. The order type by limit and market of the order
Limit order allows the investor to specify the price they are willing to buy or sell at, ensuring they get the desired price or better. On the other hand, the market order executes as soon as possible at the going price at the time. However, this type of order is usually executed more quickly but can result in an unexpected outcome if the market price changes rapidly. When buying Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), Limit Orders are generally recommended to get the best possible price.
3. ETF liquidity has always been very important when selecting any investment
The more liquid an investment is, the easier and more cost-effective it could be traded. The less liquid an investment has, it may take longer to buy or sell and higher-priced. When evaluating ETFs liquidity, it needs to be considered that ETFs are open-ended investment vehicles. This means the number of shares in the ETFs will increase or reduce in favor of the investor.
