In a recent VettaFi Viewpoints video episode, Dave Nadig, a financial futurist at VettaFi, sat down with Pat Chiefalo, head of ETFs & Indexed Strategies at Invesco Canada, to talk all things cross-border investing to give investors a deeper understanding of what is going on in Canada.
Chiefalo shared his insights into how the Canadian ETF market has changed in the long term, and his expectations for it in the future. The pair also discuss whether the regulatory structure in Canada is as flexible and innovative as it was 15 years ago.
In addition, Chiefalo goes in-depth explaining a key difference between Invesco’s Canadian product line versus its U.S. one. He and Nadig close the conversation by sharing their thoughts on asset allocation strategies, and whether or not there will be a reallocation out of cash and bonds, and back into equities as we head into the new year.
