Make sure you know how your ETF is structured
Physical Replication
The manager of the funds physically buys and holds all or a representative subset of the shares that make up the index

More transparent, easier to understand

Can limit access to certain markets and exposures
Synthetic Replication
The manager uses derivatives – a contract between two parties related to a particular asset – rather than physically buying the assets

Enables access to markets and exposures that physical replication may not

Counterparty risk – investors could be exposed to the risk that a single financial institution – the counterparty – may not be able to pay the index return
