What you should ask before investing
■ What is the performance of the ETF, over a number of different periods, against the actual returns of the index or commodity it tracks?
■ What are the costs? Do these include buying and selling the ETF, and will I be taxed when I sell?
■ Does this ETF track the index exactly or does it apply different weightings to certain shares?
■ Given the volatility of the rand, to what extent can you predict the performance of this offshore ETF?
