Getting Started with ETFs - Part 1

Updated: Oct 30, 2021

Note 30th October 2021 - Added Blogs section which will be added to - check out the Passive Investing Australia link just added.

Before we get started, we just wanted to say thank you and welcome to this Getting Started with ETFs series. We're big fans of ETFs (especially ETF data) but if you're just getting started, before we can even get into showing you the power of that data we need you to learn some of the basic first.

We have collated and created this series to take you on a journey from getting started, to understanding the data to creating your own unique insights with the tools we provide and finally, using data as part of your investment decision making.

This article is part 1 of a wider and growing series as you can see below. If you consider yourself advanced for this part of the series, feel free to jump ahead.

What to read, watch or listen to get started

The following videos are ones we've often shared with friends and family who are also getting started. There are quite a few more out there but these are some of the best we've seen starting off with Equity Mates:

And these ones from Rask Australia:

And others from around the web:


The above Equity Mates chats are available on Spotify so if you prefer to just listen (and don't have YouTube Premium which lets you do that) then we have those links below as well as a few more.


Variety of articles out there which go from explaining ETFs to also talking about ways to invest. The messages are similar across all
