    Peak Passive or Still Early Days?
    Derek Fulton, CEO, First Trust Global Portfolios Dec 19 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We often hear debates about whether we have reached peak passive and how much further can the ETF industry grow. First Trust will make the case that ETF growth is still in its early stages and that ETFs are a kind of disruptive technology which will accelerate fundamental change in the investment industry.

    The ETF structure is an innovation in investment fund technology which we believe will become the most widely used vehicle for all types of investment strategy. In fact, actively managed ETFs are already the fastest growing area of the industry in the United States.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand the differences and similarities between a UCITS ETF and UCITS OEIC fund
    • Trace the evolution of ETFs from passive market capitalisation index tracking through smart beta to actively managed strategies
    • Understand how investors in the US are using ETFs to build more granular bespoke client investment solutions

    Investing in Bangladesh: from private to public equities
    Mohammed Jahir Miah, MIoD Jan 24 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Bangladesh, a country with 160+ million population and $300 billion GDP, is growing more than 8%, which is one of the highest growth in Asia. Although agriculture growth has slowed, but the country has witnessed tremendous growth in manufacturing and services in the fiscal year FY 2019. Domestic consumption continued to remain strong and the country has shown superior level of resilience amid global economic slowdown. The impending completion of large infrastructure projects could help sustain this growth, which would enable the country to become one of the most stable high growth countries in the World. However, financial sector vulnerability due to increasing non-performing loans is a serious concern. Other major risks like political uncertainties have subsided as the present government is consolidating its position in it's third consecutive terms.

    This webinar will discuss how Bangladesh has been positioned as one of the most attractive destinations for investment. What the major prospects of doing business here are, and what the opportunities of investment in private and public equities are. The webinar will also discuss about the challenges of investments in both type of equities.
