Richard Morris, partner at Morgan Lewis joined Asset TV’s Evan Cooper at ETF Trends’ inaugural ETF Boot Camp in New York to discuss the evolution of exchange traded funds into less liquid asset classes, such as emerging market debt.

“I think we continue to see, as the ETF market expands, a movement of ETFs into new types of investment strategies, which may include some less liquid instruments such as emerging markets bonds and different types of derivatives,” said Morris. “I think ultimately that’s a good move for investors because that will continue to give investors choice.”

Morris added that the transparency of the ETF structure “lends itself well to some of these less liquid investments.”

Transparency of the portfolio and ability to access the underlying investments are two key features of ETFs, according to Morris.
