Can you invest in the FTSE 100?

The Financial Times Stock Exchange 100 (FTSE 100) is a stock market index comprising the 100 largest companies on the London Stock Exchange (by market capitalisation), which includes companies like BP, HSBC, Barclays and Sainsbury’s.

While you can’t actually invest directly into the FTSE 100 (unless you bought shares in each of the companies in the index), you can get exposure to the index by investing in an exchange-traded fund (ETF) which tracks the performance of the stocks in the FTSE 100.

How to invest in the FTSE 100

  1. Buy FTSE 100 stocks directly. You can buy individual stocks from the FTSE 100 index using a brokerage or share-trading platform. You could buy one share of each company to create your own index, or buy shares in select companies.
  2. Invest in a FTSE 100 ETF. If you want exposure to all the companies in the FTSE 100 without having to buy individual shares (and avoiding trading fees), you could instead invest in an FTSE 100 ETF. These are index funds that track the performance of the stocks in the FTSE 100.

The FTSE 100 and coronavirus

As with the rest of the UK stock market, the FTSE 100 dropped significantly in March 2020 in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. While every stock in the index experienced volatility, some fared better than others. The potential advantage of investing in an index is to help diversify your portfolio and mitigate exposure to risk. However, certain FTSE 100 stocks are likely to perform markedly better or worse than others over the coming months, and it may be worth curating a list of FTSE 100 companies you want to invest in.

How to start trading the FTSE 100

Whether you want to invest directly in FTSE 100 stocks, or invest in a FTSE 100 ETF, you’ll need to open an account with a trading platform or brokerage. Different platforms will offer different FTSE stocks and ETFs, and each has its own fee structure. You can compare the leading share-dealing platforms below.

You can use the chart below to track the performance of the FTSE 100:

How do FTSE 100 ETFs work?

When you buy an FTSE 100 ETF, you are not investing directly in the companies in the index. Most FTSE 100 ETFs will hold shares in the companies in the index, but you won’t yourself by just buying the ETF.

However, the ETFs performance will track closely with the performance of the stocks in the index. For example, if the FTSE 100 increases in value by 2%, your ETF should also increase close to 2%.

To invest in an ETF, you’ll generally need to pay a fee of around 0.07% to 0.25% each year, as well as any trading commissions charged by the broker.

Types of ETF

Most FTSE 100 ETFs will fully track the performance of the FTSE 100, meaning the fund is weighted more towards the companies with higher market capitalisation. However, there are some ETFs such as the db X-Trackers FTSE 100 Equal Weight UCITS ETF (XFEW) which invests in the companies in the index equally. This means the performance of smaller companies will have a larger impact on the ETF, relative to their size.

Short ETFs. There are a number of short FTSE 100 ETFs, which effectively bet against the performance of the index. If the FTSE 100 goes down, the value of a short ETF should go up.

Leveraged ETFs. Leveraged ETFs multiply the gains and losses of the index, meaning you’ll get a higher or lower return relative to the size of your investment. You’re effectively borrowing extra capital to potentially increase your returns. For example, if you invest £1,000 in a FTSE 100 ETF with 10x leverage and it goes up 5%, you’d make £500 instead of £50. However, the same would apply to losses.
