Wed 11 Sep 19 at WEBINAR, Link will be emailed closer to the time

Retail and institutional investors are switching from mutual funds to ETFs at an unprecedented pace. 4 Trillion of assets are now invested in ETFs – but not all funds are built alike.

When you create an ETF portfolio, you are often faced with a selection of seemingly similar funds... so how do you figure out the right choice? Cost? Size? Brand? Or something else?

This presentation provides expert advice to help you take back control of your fund choices.

In this webinar Hector McNeil and Tomasz Mazur, CFA will discuss:

  • Background to ETF investing
  • How investors should choose ETFs for their portfolios
  • How ETF issuers differentiate their products in a highly competitive market
  • What really impacts ETF liquidity and the total cost of execution and ownership
