Since the launch of the first commercially successful Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) in the US in 1993, the Exchange Traded Product (ETP) industry has experienced phenomenal growth. Today, ETFs are an essential portfolio management tool, providing investors with exposure to a diverse range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, currencies, commodities and real estate, as well as thematic and fundamental index strategies, right across the spectrum of global markets.
With more than 3,600 ETF and ETP listings globally (approximately 1,350 in Europe, at the last count) on more than 40 exchanges around the world, with estimated assets of over US$1,500 billion, the breadth of opportunities now available to investors is truly breathtaking. Indeed, the increasing proliferation and popularity of ETFs demonstrates the value investors and advisers place on the benefits that they typically deliver versus traditional mutual funds – namely transparency, liquidity, diversification, flexibility, performance and cost.
ETFs are, undoubtedly, revolutionising the way investors and their advisers manage portfolios. However, the exponential increase in the number, scope and, most notably, complexity of ETFs (and ETPs in general) in recent years has made the task of understanding the marketplace progressively more challenging. This is where ETF Strategy comes in.
Aimed at IFAs, investment managers, private bankers and sophisticated private investors, we cut through the noise to bring you news, views, ideas and insight, to help you better achieve your ETF investment goals, as well as keeping you up to date with industry developments. With exciting, original content delivered every day online (and soon every quarter in print), ETF Strategy is the leading UK-based source for dedicated ETF information and news.
Focused entirely on ETFs and related ETPs (such as ETCs and ETNs), ETF Strategy provides readers with industry news, product reviews, asset allocation advice, portfolio trading ideas and thematic research, as well as views and opinion from senior voices within the ETF community.
Since launching last year, our online presence and following has increased rapidly. Indeed, from a standing start, we now receive thousands of visitors every month – and this number is growing exponentially. However, from our perspective, this is just the beginning and we have no intention of stopping here. Expect our content offering to grow and evolve.
