FUND MANAGER CLOSE

Most, but not all, ETFs are index-tracking funds and therefore try to invest in stocks that reflect the index they are tracking. Therefore, a fund manager or fund team are rarely required as the composition of the fund is usually assembled and traded by a computer algorithm.

This keeps fund costs very low.
For example, if a company is relegated from the FTSE 100 and replaced by another company, the ETF will automatically sell its holding in the relegated stock and buy into the newly promoted FTSE 100 company.
