- What are ETFS? What product flavors (e.g., passive, active, smart beta, and multi-asset) are in the market now?
- What are the benefits of adding ETFs to your investment portfolio, and how should you approach ETF investing?
- Have ETFs truly been tested in a period of high market volatility? Do they pose a systemic risk or the potential for material, sustained, and widespread losses due to some sort of market breakdown?
- What are regulators thinking about at this time?
- Do ETFs carry a liquidity risk? Should we think of ETFs as truly transparent vehicles, and does that matter?
