Education Is Needed to Meet the Quick Expansion in ETFs

As the exchange traded fund universe continues to expand, there is a growing need for education to keep up with the endless supply of new strategies hitting the market.

ETF Trends publisher Tom Lydon spoke with Peter De Boer, Chief Executive Officer of CFRA, and Todd Rosenbluth, Director at CFRA, at the Inside ETFs conference that ran Jan. 22-25, 2017 to talk about the growing need for education and research in an expanding universe of investments as a way to find the best opportunities for a diversified portfolio.

“CFRA is an independent research company that’s been around for about 25 years,” De Boer said. “We focus on forensic accounting research and earnings quality.”

“We look at ourselves, now, as one of the largest independent research providers that are out there really focused on quality, scale and performance for our clients.”
