ETFs are excellent instruments for investing: they are cheap and liquid which means they can be resold easily. They also have much lower management costs than traditional investment funds, often with better performance. Studies show that 80% of traditional funds do not beat their benchmark.

ETFs also offer naturally diversified portfolios, even from small capital investments. When we buy an ETF that reproduces the CAC 40, it is as if we are buying a small proportion of each of the 40 companies that make up the CAC 40 - but at a much lower cost.

There are several thousand ETFs available. We have selected 50 to create our portfolios. To select the best, we used ETF specialists TrackInsight.

Moreover, Birdee selects the exchange-traded funds (ETF) entering the investment universe based on the European Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector also called SFDR (Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation).
