Thematic Thursdays-Exploring thematic trends: airlines, sports betting & iGaming

Presented by

Frank Holmes, CEO and Chief Investment Officer of US Global Investors, Aaron Fischer, CEO and Founder of Fischer Gaming

About this talk

Join us as we take a closer look at the growing number of thematic ETFs available to European investors and dive deeper into these underlying themes. In this webinar we will be discussing new and upcoming ETF themes and will be joined by thematic ETF experts to discuss two emerging sectors: The iGaming and sports betting industry: The global gaming industry has generally been fast growing over the last decade, pre-COVID, due to exceptional growth in Asia, notably in Macau and Singapore. New casino projects globally have also fuelled growth, given strong untapped demand in most markets. Looking forward, Fischer Gaming believe that growth is likely to come from Asia and online wagering on a global basis. On the other hand, the bricks and mortar market in the US is relatively mature. The convention and group travel market is also expected to take time to recover which impacts locations such as Las Vegas. Aaron Fishcer, CEO of Fischer Gaming and iGaming and sports betting expert, will be discussing: • Increased social acceptance of gambling and betting • Regulatory changes • Sports betting and iGaming companies to watch The airline industry: In the U.S., the pandemic meant commercial air travel demand hit a record low on April 13, 2020, with the number of passengers totaling 87,534, an incredible 96% decline from the same calendar day a year earlier. The impact to European network traffic was just as severe: In the week ended April 19, 2020, there were nearly 90% fewer flights than the same period in 2019, according to Eurocontrol. Global airline stocks tanked 20% in February 2020, a further 40% in March. As the airline industry begins to recover, we'll be joined by Frank Holmes, CEO of U.S. Global Investors, to discuss: • The recovery on the industry post-pandemic • What the Delta Variant could mean for airlines • What the future of travel could look like For professional investors only. Capital at risk.
