EXCHANGE TRADED FORUM 2013
ETRs, ETFs, Indexing...
Investing has changed and the products offered are evolving quickly. As these asset classes increase in number and sophistication, investors are rapidly discovering that these products are an excellent investment option to diversify, limit risk and capitalize on opportunity.
2012 proved to be a record year for both sales and assets under administration for the Canadian Exchange Traded Funds industry. Assets were up 30% to an impressive $56.4 billion.
The number of products in Canada increased from 227 in 2011 to 265 at the end of 2012. The majority of the growth in ETFs in 2012 was in fixed income up 50% from the previous year.
What's in store for ETFs in 2013? We believe we will see continued growth in this rapidly expanding sector. However, in order to attract new assets the providers will need to launch new cost effective, innovative products. These products will be more sophisticated in both structure and sector allocation.
To this end there will be increased regulatory focus and plenty of media exposure, both good and bad. The need for education and understanding in all types of exchange traded products is now more necessary than ever.
