As the name itself suggests, the ETF is a type of fund which gets the valuation from a single underlying asset or a collection of it assets like crude, gold, currency, stock sand even bonds. Essentially the buyer does not have any physical stake in the underlying asset. However indirectly gain or lose for the relative rise or fall in the valuation of the underlying asset.

The number and circulation of ETFs is generally regulating by the Authorized Participants. These APs or the authorize participants are generally the big financial houses like banks and investment banks with significant buying power. They have the capability to both create as well as redeem these ETFs. For creation of these exchange traded funds, a portfolio of the underlying assets are assembling.
