EXCHANGE TRADED FORUM 2014
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.
2013 proved to be another great year for both sales and assets under administration for the Canadian Exchange Traded Funds industry. Assets are up 6% to an impressive $60 billion (as of September 30th, 2013).
The number of products in Canada increased from 265 in 2012 to 296 at the end of October 2013. While equity demand has held steady, investor’s preference for fixed income has declined in response to sharply rising yields and greater uncertainty in the bond market.
What's in store for ETFs in 2014? We believe we will see continued growth in this rapidly expanding sector. However, in order to attract new assets the providers will continue 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.
Radius Financial Education is proud to be hosting this event in Toronto and Vancouver, bringing together leading professionals from every segment of this dynamic group of investment products, including investors, advisors, managers, research professionals, regulatory experts, noted financial educators and authors, to share their expertise, views and analysis.
Investing has changed, let the Exchange Traded Forum 2014 be your opportunity to learn, network, gain experience and be visible.
