  • ETFs have attracted many investors as one of the most innovative products of financial engineering.

MyETF is different from FBM 30ETF in terms of investment scope and Shariah governance structure. While MyETF has achieved its objective in tracking its index, FBM 30ETF has failed in this respect.
