WEBCAST: Smart Beta: Capturing Economic Output With GDP Weighted Indexes

Presented by

FTSE Russell

About this talk

In 2014, China overtook the USA as the world's largest economy by GDP. As the economic size of a country can differ significantly from its market capitalization, especially within faster growing, emerging economies, we explore the implications of a GDP weighted approach to index construction. Join Brendan Ahern, Chief Investment Officer at KraneShares and Brad Zucker, Senior Product Research Analyst at FTSE Group who will be looking at the growth of emerging markets and discussing: - Macro economic overview of emerging markets - Does measuring and weighting by GDP make sense? - The impact of GDP weighting on emerging market and sector exposures - Managing liquidity, capacity and transparency considerations - New benchmarks for a new global economy? What can GDP weighted indexes offer?
