A CFALA & Programming Advisory Counsel Sponsored Event

Our speaker is Deborah Fuhr, CEO of ETFGI, authored the appendix on International ETF's for CFA Institute's  “A Comprehensive Guide to Exchange Traded Products" and internationally recognized expert on indices and exchange traded products.

Ms. Fuhr will be discussing a range of topics including:

  • What are the recent and expected future trends in ETF, ETP, and Mutual Fund flows?
  • Will mutual funds rather than ETF’s continue to dominate retirement plan offerings in the future?
  • What are the risks to investors when an exchange traded product fails?
  • What are the risks/rewards of ETFs or index funds that sample rather than hold all the components of an index?
  • Does the US need benchmark overview as is now done in Europe?
  • Is the rapid growth of indexing likely to reshape corporate governance?

Copies of the CFA Institute’s “A Comprehensive Guide to Exchange Traded Products” will be available without charge to attendees.
