The explosive growth of Exchange Traded Products, including ETFs, have transformed investing. Their benefits are obvious: They provide diversification, ease of access, a low cost structure, and an overall risk-return profile that is superior to most other investments. Additionally, smarter beta ETFs offer the possibility of market beating returns but without the high management fees of traditional alpha products.
Less obvious is how to choose the right ETP: In considering ETPs, advisors often apply the same tools used to evaluate mutual funds and separate account strategies, which may lead them to ask the wrong questions. Instead new tools are called for, and in particular advisors need to develop a customized process. This webinar explains how to do this, including sharing best practices used by institutional investors. You will learn how to recognize the differences between ETPs, what to look at in evaluating their potential benefits and risks and we will present some practical considerations on trading ETPs.
