Investing with ETFs

Foundations, Crypto trends and more

About the course

ETFs give investors access to a variety of international financial markets for a fraction of the price of investment funds. The majority of ETFs are passive investments, which means they try to mimic another investment’s performance.

ETFs are a fantastic place to start since they provide built-in diversity and don’t need a lot of cash to invest in a variety of equities. They have a broad portfolio and may be traded like equities.

ETFs provide a number of benefits over conventional open-end funds. Trading freedom, portfolio diversification and risk management, lower expenses, and tax savings are the four most noticeable benefits.

Since ETFs are often less erratic than individual equities, the value of your investment won’t fluctuate as much. The cost of the fund expressed as a percentage of your investment is minimal for the top ETFs.

This course is here to guide you through Investing in digital assets, which can be done through ETFs, and it also explains the benefits of purchasing ETFs along with the trends in the cryptocurrency market.

Course Content

Cryptocurrency has gained significant attention in recent years as a disruptive technology in the financial industry. However, the volatile nature of the crypto market has also raised concerns about its potential risks. In this chapter, we will look into the current state of the crypto market and explore the potential threats that it may pose to the financial system.
The crypto market trends in recent months have led to concerns about the stability of the market and the potential risks it may pose to participants. Despite these challenges, the integration of crypto assets into mainstream finance continues to progress, leading to a “wait and see” situation for regulators.
One of the primary concerns about the crypto market is its potential to pose systematic risks to the financial system. This can occur if a major player in the market collapses, leading to a domino effect on other firms and participants. The Bank of England’s Financial Policy Committee has called for enhanced regulation of the stock market to mitigate these types of risks. However, it is worth noting that at this time, crypto assets do not pose a significant threat to the financial system.
In light of the current market conditions and potential risks, many firms are taking steps to tighten their policies and avoid potential risks. This includes avoiding investment in high-risk crypto assets and increasing scrutiny of potential partners in the crypto space.
Overall, the crypto market continues to experience significant volatility, raising concerns about its potential risks. While the current market conditions do not pose a significant threat to the financial system, it is important for firms to carefully consider the risks and take appropriate steps to mitigate them. As the integration of crypto assets into mainstream finance continues, it will be important for regulators to closely monitor the market and take necessary action to ensure the stability and security of the financial system.

Latest THINK Courses


CFTE’s brand new online learning platform! THINK produces and delivers dozens of bite-sized courses which will allow you to get a good understanding and be constantly updated about everything concerning Fintech!

Disruptive technologies and innovations don’t come on their own. They bring significant transformations and challenges both in terms of culture, people, jobs, environment and governance. Therefore we believe these topics can’t be separated from one another. 

The courses offered on THINK have slightly different approaches to the topics. You’ll find evergreen foundational-level courses which will help you get a good understanding without any prior knowledge, but you’ll also find courses that explore the players in the respective ecosystems, courses that explore the regulations of a certain field and even courses that dive deep into specific companies’ way of operating!

THINK is meant for all those professionals who want to be kept up to date with the latest developments in these fields, but don’t necessarily have the time to go through countless articles or newspapers.

Technology is deeply transforming the way financial institutions do business and manage operations. Understanding these shifts will allow you to benefit from them, and not miss out on any potential opportunities for you and your organisation.

Users and customers nowadays are more aware than ever about the environmental and social impact of their choices, as a consequence companies are putting more attention on these topics even at the cost of reduced financial performances.

Digital Assets, Blockchain, Decentralisation and Web3 are still in a very early stage. They may reshape and revolutionise our current business models, therefore we believe it’s worth  paying special attention to the innovations they bring to the table.

Understanding how technology works, its potential and its limitations is essential to properly embrace it and leverage it. Even non-technical professionals need to get a comprehensive understanding of these tools, as they will have an increasingly important role in our lives.
