A SNAPSHOT OF HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE 3RD ANNUAL INSIDE ETFS EUROPE CONFERENCE
The third Inside ETFs Europe conference addressed the issues most of interest to European investors in exchange-traded funds. Highlights of this year's agenda included:
- A Live Trading Session, during which attendees experienced a real-time trading environment and learned how to source liquidity in a variety of ETFs.
- Keynote lunchtime talks, including a discussion of the 2010 flash crash and whether market structure remains "an accident waiting to happen".
- 15 Informative Sessions involving leading experts, covering:
- How to choose the right ETF
- The pros and cons of "smart beta"
- Measuring a fund's fair value
- Using ETFs in the bond markets
To meet investors and the industry. It is definitely the most valuable yearly ETF event in Europe.
