What are Cedars?
The acronym stands for (Argentine Deposit Certificates) and they are financial assets of the local market that represent ordinary shares of companies listed abroad, for example Apple or Amazon, Alibabá, Disney or Tesla.
The domestic market offers a wide range of options, including Argentine stocks that are not listed in Buenos Aires but are listed in New York, as is the case of Mercado Libre.
They are traded both in pesos and dollars, although it is worth noting that currently the largest volume of operations is in pesos.
Among its main advantages is that it allows you to invest in the most important companies in the world without needing to have an account in the United States and that the position remains dollarized since the price is not only adjusted according to the variation in the price of the share in the foreign market, but also from changes in the price of the CCL dollar.
What are ETFs (Exchange Trade Funds)?
They are investment funds that have the particularity of being listed on the stock market. These instruments are made up of other assets. Among the advantages they have is diversification with a relatively low amount.
ETFs can replicate the price of stocks, bonds, commodities and there are also some that are tied to indices. From now on, ETFs that replicate the three main Wall Street indices, the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nadaq, are available.
