There are three ways to get returns from ETFs
- Dividends – The ETFs will pay dividends if the ETF you have invested in pays dividends.
- Interest – If the ETF invests in bonds or other fixed interest securities.
- Capital gains – This is the profit you make by selling an ETF for a higher price than you paid
Every ETF is different so it’s important to read the ETF’s product disclosure statement for more details.
