WP Advisor Connect: what's in store for ETFs?

What is the future of ETFs?  

Find out in Wealth Professional’s next WP Advisor Connect, “Disruption, Innovation & Opportunities: The Future of ETFs” roundtable, being held on September 8. You can still register here.

With surging inflation, rising interest rates, a reeling bond market, and volatile equity market, the Canadian flows into exchange-traded funds (ETFs) started strong, but have moderated.

The Investment Funds Institution of Canada reported that Canadian ETFs had $32 billion in ETF inflow for the first half of June 2021 and $16 billion for the first half of 2022. That contrasted with $3.5 billion in mutual fund redemptions for the first half of 2022.

Our upcoming WP Advisor Connect is looking at what's next for the ETF industry. What are the best strategies and asset classes for advisors to pick for portfolios? What investment mega-themes could remain resilient – or gain traction? Will we see a tipping point in the saga of active versus passive management?

Wealth Professional has assembled a panel of four ETF industry leaders for this roundtable on ETFs. They are:

  • Veronika Popova, Director, ETF Strategy, CI Global Asset Management
  • Lisa Lake Langley, Chief Executive Officer and President, Emerge Canada Inc.
  • Ahmed Farooq, Senior Vice President, Head of Retail ETF Distribution, Franklin Templeton
  • Trevor Cummings, Vice President, ETF Distribution, TD

The roundtable will showcase these industry insiders’ investment expertise in passive products, disruptive innovation, global equities, and alternative strategies.

There is still time to register here for this free, must-see event for advisors who want to skillfully navigate the next phase of market and ETF uncertainty.
