Capital markets: Making the ecosystem tick

The ETF wrapper passed another stress test during the coronavirus turmoil with capital markets teams playing a crucial role in keeping ETF spreads narrow and ensuring authorised participants continued to make markets.

Structural issues in the secondary market remain however. Fragmentation problems in Europe continue to be a headache for the ecosystem while investors are crying out for a consolidated tape to be brought to market.

This live discussion will take a closer look at the steps being taken to improve market structure and ensure ETFs trade as efficiently as possible.

    Tom Eckett, Deputy Editor, ETF Stream
    ESG ETFs performed strongly during the coronavirus turbulence with some industry commentators claiming this shows how incorporating environmental, social and governance factors can improve the risk-return profile of portfolios.

    Although this is growing, and at a rapid pace, the way investors incorporate sustainable products into portfolios remains a big question.

    This live discussion will explore the key developments taking place in the space while looking at the different ways investors can use ESG ETFs in their portfolios.
  • Fixed income ETF innovation: New developments in a growing market Jun 17 2020 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Tom Eckett, Deputy Editor, ETF Stream
    The fixed income ETF market is still in its early stages of both growth and innovation. ETFs account for less than 1% of the entire fixed income market highlighting the huge growth potential there is.

    As investors become more comfortable with the ETF wrapper in the bond space, ETF issuers are starting to move away from the traditionally passive space.

    Smart beta, credit default swaps and fallen angel ETFs are just a few examples of innovation taking place in the fixed income ETF market. This live discussion will study the different options available to investors and highlight the areas of the market where further innovation is required to meet demand.

    Tom Eckett, Deputy Editor, ETF Stream
    Over past few weeks, fixed income ETFs have widened on all-time high discounts amid the turbulence witnessed across global markets.

    Critics argue their concerns ETFs provide an “illusion of liquidity” offering easy access to extremely illiquid parts of the market, meanwhile, some investors will be disappointed the ETFs they invested in have failed to track their indices accurately.

    This webinar will explore whether these concerns are justified and if the recent structural issues highlighted will change the way bond ETFs are viewed by the market.
