List of Energy ETFs and ETNs

Various Energy ETFs and ETNs to Consider for Your Portfolio


Energy ETFs can be a great addition to your portfolio in order to diversify, curb inflation, hedge your energy investments, or just gain some exposure to the energy sector. And if you look carefully, you may even find an emerging market.

However, I strongly suggest watching each of these industry and commodity ETFs to see how they react to market conditions before making any investments.

To learn about each ETF or ETN, click on the listing for a description of the fund to help you decide if any of these assets should be a part of your investing strategy.
