More Investors are Using ETFs to Mitigate Risk

At the Morningstar Investment Conference, BetaShares’ Alex Vynokur discussed the role of using ETF strategies, passive and active, to mitigate risks.

Points discussed:

  • The majority of clients at BetaShares incorporate both active and passive investing
  • ETFs allow investors to access more market exposures efficiently
  • Actively-managed ETFs allow investors to access actively-managed funds at a lower cost
  • BetaShares’ business model is to partner with high-caliber active managers to bring active ETFs to the market
  • The way investors use ETFs has evolved significantly–previously, it was a simple buy and hold strategy; now, they are used more tactically and for risk management
  • Fixed income is seeing large growth because it’s harder for investors to purchase individual bonds–ETFs are democratizing the asset class
