In the course of the analysis, the advantages and disadvantages of the most popular investment methods among the population of the Russian Federation were systematized. The authors noted that along with the considered methods of increasing capital, there is a very effective way of investing money in exchange-traded funds (ETF). The authors highlighted the advantages of ETF among other investment instruments. The analysis showed that the legal regulation of ETFs in the Russian Federation is limited exclusively to the process of ETF circulation, while the very concept of an exchange-traded investment fund, as well as the procedure for its formation and control over the circulation of funds, is currently not legally regulated, which is the main reason for the small popularity and demand for ETFs among the population of the Russian Federation. As a result of the analysis of the profitability of exchange-traded investment funds, it was revealed that the latter are highly effective instruments for investing free funds. At the same time, the authors note that an investment portfolio consisting only of ETFs can simultaneously be characterized by both high profitability and minimal risks, which is explained by a wide range of exchange-traded investment funds by asset structure.
