  • Clean energy ETFs: What next for the green revolution? May 5 2021 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Tom Eckett, Editor, ETF Stream
    Clean energy ETFs were some of the best performing strategies last year driven by the long-term shift to renewable resources and US President Joe Biden’s pledged support of the sector.

    There is no doubting the long-term prospects of renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power, however, given the recent explosion, questions remain about whether it will deliver in the short-to-medium term.

    The huge popularity of the sector has led a number of issuers in Europe to launch ETFs and this webinar will provide a breakdown of the key metrics to look for when selecting the right clean energy ETF along with how the theme is set to develop over the next five years.

  • Single Stock ETPs: Leverage 2.0 Recorded: Apr 14 2021 60 mins
    Tom Eckett, Editor, ETF Stream
    The way retail investors trade has changed dramatically over the past year. The impact of the Reddit forum WallStreetBets on GameStop and many other names only goes to highlight the impact the average investor can have on markets. Another new development has been the introduction of single stock leveraged exchange-traded products (ETPs) which enable investors to enhance the returns of their favourite names such as Tesla and PayPal. This webinar will explore how investing patterns are changing, the role of leverage and the risks and opportunities of trading leverage ETPs.

  • Climate ETFs: Taking ESG to the next level Recorded: Mar 17 2021 60 mins
    Tom Eckett, Editor, ETF Stream
    Incorporating climate change factors within portfolios is fast becoming the most important asset allocation decision for investors.

    With more assets at risk of becoming stranded due to the Paris Agreement and wider favourable ESG regulation, investors are starting to consider how climate can impact individual companies and sectors.

    A recent ETF Stream survey conducted with Amundi found 65% of investors are looking to align their portfolios with the Paris Climate Agreement highlighting the increasing demand for climate solutions.

    In response, there have been a string of climate ETF launches over the past year that align with the European Union’s two climate benchmarks; the Climate Transition Benchmark (CTB) and the Paris-aligned Benchmark (PAB).

    As part of ETF Stream and Amundi’s investigation into the rise of ESG, this webinar will analyse the rising demand for climate ETFs, how they can act as a risk management tool and the underlying indices they offer exposure to.

  • Cryptocurrencies: The role of ETPs within a maturing market Recorded: Feb 17 2021 63 mins
    Tom Eckett
    Over the past few years, the cryptocurrency space has developed from a market previously described as “worse than tulip bulbs” to one where institutional investors are rapidly increasing their exposure.

    The move from retail to institutional adoption was the key trend of 2020 and shows no signs of slowing down over the next 12 months.

    As a result, European ETF issuers have been launching crypto exchange-traded products (ETPs) at a rapid rate in a move to capture the ballooning demand.

    This webinar will explore the key trends taking place in the space and examine the key role ETPs play within this market.

  • ESG ETF explosion: Dissecting the rapidly evolving landscape Recorded: Feb 3 2021 63 mins
    Tom Eckett, Deputy Editor, ETF Stream
    The rapid rise of ESG ETFs over the past 12 months has been nothing short of remarkable with ESG ETF inflows outpacing non-ESG assets in 2020.

    From a recent ETF Stream survey conducted with Amundi, it is clear investors are turning to the ETF wrapper as a way of allocating sustainably with 70% of respondents planning to increase their allocation to ESG ETFs over the next 12 months.

    However, with the numerous ESG ETFs available on the European market ranging from simple exclusion to deep green impact, selecting the most suitable one for a portfolio can be a challenge for any investor.

    As part of ETF Stream and Amundi’s investigation into the rise of ESG, this webinar will analyse the different types of ESG ETFs on the market and the key considerations to take into account when selecting these strategies.

  • ETF liquidity: Addressing the myths and misnomers Recorded: Nov 18 2020 62 mins
    Tom Eckett
    The extreme market volatility during the coronavirus turmoil in March provided a perfect window into how ETFs behave in periods of heightened stress.

    With fixed income ETFs discounts widening to all-time highs during this period, ETF critics were keen to point out the supposed inherent flaws of the wrapper in providing an “illusion of liquidity” to investors that would simply vanish if markets became stretched.

    However, what instead was revealed was something quite different with ETFs playing a role in offering real-time pricing to investors even when the underlying market was not trading.

    Along with the role of price discovery, this webinar will explore some of the key benefits of ETFs and address some of the myths surrounding the wrapper.

    Speakers: Daniel Izzo, CEO of GHCO
    Gregoire Blanc, global head of ETF capital markets and liquidity at Amundi
    Vincent Denoiseux, head of ETF research at Lyxor

    Tom Eckett, deputy editor at ETF Stream
    The ESG ETF market has exploded in Europe over the past few years with more and more investors seeing ESG as a viable investment solution.

  • The Road to Beyond Beta Europe Digital - When will value make a comeback? Recorded: Sep 3 2020 45 mins
    George Geddes, senior writer, ETF Stream
    “Value investing is dead.” Calls of this nature have become louder and more numerous as year after year the factor fails to deliver out-performance for investors.

    While the reasons for this under-performance are well documented – the rise of technology and central bank quantitative easing programmes being two – what is less clear is when, if ever, value will make a comeback.

    As we build up to Beyond Beta Europe Digital 2020, this live discussion will explore the drivers of value’s consistent under-performance while predicting how and when the beleaguered factor could make a comeback.

  • ESG Investing: A luxury in turbulent markets or a decade-long necessity? Recorded: Aug 21 2020 54 mins
    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.

  • Fixed income ETF innovation: New developments in a growing market Recorded: Aug 14 2020 55 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
    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.

    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.
