  • Peak Passive or Still Early Days? Dec 19 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Derek Fulton, CEO, First Trust Global Portfolios
    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

  • Part 6 - Thematic Investing - IPOs and Spin Offs Recorded: Jul 16 2019 5 mins
    Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist
    IPOs and Spin-Offs are seen as dynamic moments in the history of a company. In many ways it represents both the ending and the beginning of a company’s history. The exciting part is that the “beginning” of the post-IPO or Spin-off period, usually starts with quite a lot of capital. In fact, according to Bloomberg, from 2002 through to June 2019, U.S. IPOs have raised over $570.87 billion USD in market cap.

    In this video, Gregg will provide an overview of what we feel makes New Listings so special, how Thematic Investing can aid an investor to access securities they otherwise would have little-to-no exposure to, and why First Trust feels they may present a great opportunity for the thematic focused investor.

    Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist
    Blockchain has the potential to impact the world as much as the internet did in the 1990’s and become the next big infrastructure of innovation.

    Blockchain is however NOT Bitcoin but simply the powerful technology Cryptocurrencies use, similar to how email uses the internet. As the technology continues to evolve and being nearly impossible to tamper with, we are seeing more and more companies across a variety of industries and sectors using the technology to enable the real-time transmission of information and data.

    In this video, Gregg Guerin will discuss the essence of the Blockchain, a few dynamic applications of the technology, and some of the major players driving the advancement of the Blockchain in the real world.

In fact, the International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates the compound five year annual growth rate (CAGR) of the Cloud Computing market to be 21.9%, between 2016 and 2021.

    Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist & Leonardo Da Costa, Senior Portfolio Manager
    Today, according to the World Bank, Emerging Markets represent a larger share of the world economy than either the U.S., the EU and Japan individually. However, they do typically represent a more modest allocation in Investors’ portfolios.

    Yes, emerging markets may be volatile, but over the long-term we feel the asset class can offer some compelling opportunities.

    Many investment professionals are aware of factors and their presence and effect on the equity markets. However, factors are not bound by asset class and some of the same factors that exist in equity markets are also present in other asset classes, such as the FX markets. 2018 was a year where almost every asset class had negative returns, however currencies chosen using certain factors actually produced positive returns.

    Portfolio Manager Anthony Beevers will provide a detailed Market review of how certain factors affected the FX markets in 2018, and how that translated into a positive total return.
  • The Power of IPOs & Spin-Offs - New US Opportunities Recorded: Nov 21 2018 40 mins
    Gregg Guerin, Senior Product Specialist
    It’s no secret that the thematic offering of IPOs and Spin-Offs constitute a significant part of equity capital markets activity and are seen as drivers of innovation and growth.

    According to Bloomberg, from 2002 through September 2018, U.S. IPOs have raised over $529.49 billion USD in market cap.

    The key is to find the right investments and the right solution for you!
    The primary motivation for many investors regarding IPOs is to receive a short-term surge in price, regardless of a stock’s longer-term potential for success or failure.

    At First Trust, we take a different approach. Through our disciplined and rules-based approach, we seek to capture asset allocation benefits of strong performing U.S. companies as they transfer from a private to a publicly traded company post-IPO.

    This webinar aims to help enhance your understanding how IPOs and Spin-Offs work and how the IPOX®-100 U.S. Index technology can help investors get exposure to unique factors, not possible with conventional benchmarks.

    Webinar Highlights:
    •What are IPOs and Spin-Offs
    •Thematic approach: The market data and investment rationale
    •Why long-term asset allocation capture is behind FPX
    •Discuss the specialist FPX rules based and diversified ETF wrapper

He will also walk through our First Trust’s time-tested approach to equity income investing, how we firmly believe that investors’ buy companies, not dividends and why now might be a good time to add equity income at this point in the cycle.
