Big Call: Fixed Income ETFs



With fixed income ETFs accounting for less than 1% of the overall bond market, the growth outlook over the next five years is huge. As investor demand increases, ETF issuers have started to move away from simple passive products into more niche areas of the market such as smart beta fixed income ETFs, an area of very interesting potential.

This online event will explore the different issues facing investors when looking to slice and dice the fixed income ETF market while also taking a deep dive into the macro outlook for the bond market.

The event is exclusively aimed at buy-side professionals.
