Agenda

Inflows into exchange-traded funds (ETFs) have been on the rise.

But these low cost passive vehicles are still relatively new. 

FTAdviser has put together a panel of experts to help gain an understanding of what ETFs are, how they provide diversification in a portfolio through a range of asset classes and thematic investments, and the macroeconomic factors driving investor inflows into ETFs.

This qualifies for 30 minutes of structured CPD.
