Advisors are constantly looking for ways to improve on the quality of portfolio construction. The latest evolution of ETF tools and strategies are making huge strides in helping advisors meet their clients’ ever-changing needs. Changing markets, technology and new ways to have representation in certain asset classes are on the top of everyone’s mind.
On March 14, 2018, ETF Trends will be hosting its annual Virtual Summit, an online virtual conference environment where financial advisors can learn about current ETF issues, hear from industry experts and connect with peers without the burden of cost and traveling.
On panel titled, The Future of ETF Asset Management, Michael LaBella, Portfolio Manager for QS Investors, John Love, President and Chief Executive Officer of USCF, and Andy O’Rourke, Managing Director and Chief Marketing Officer for Portfolio+ ETFs, will focus on some of the smartest, new strategies that are attracting attention from institutions and advisors alike.
Specifically, smart beta or alternative index-based ETFs are quickly gaining momentum as a smarter way to access markets in an attempt to limit potential downside risks and still maintain upside potential.
