S&P Capital IQ and BlackRock to discuss fixed income ETFs in next “ETF Analyst Hour”


Recent comments from the Federal Reserve and a growing number of economic developments including lower unemployment have many fixed income investors wondering when, not if, interest rates will start to rise.

With this in mind, S&P Capital IQ will focus its next “ETF Analyst Hour” webinar on “Fixed Income ETFs: Growth, Innovations, and How to Analyse.”
Taking place on 21 May 2013, at 11:00am EDT, this webinar will feature special guest speaker Dodd Kittsley (pictured), director, global head of ETP Research with BlackRock, who will be joined by Todd Rosenbluth, S&P Capital IQ’s director of ETF and mutual fund research.
Kittsley will provide an overview of the state of the US ETF industry, focusing on the income front, and on industry innovations designed to address the challenge of rising interest rates.
Rosenbluth will then lead a discussion on what he sees as the best various ways to incorporate fixed income ETFs into an investor’s portfolio, including the importance of analysing variations in yield, credit quality and interest rate sensitivity.
These factors play an important role in the new ETF coverage and rankings that S&P Capital IQ will be rolling out in late May. At that time, reports and rankings on approximately 180 fixed income ETFs will be made available to subscribers of S&P Capital IQ’s MarketScope Advisor platform.
“Fixed income exchange traded funds represent one of the most compelling and fastest growing segments of the ETF industry,” says Kittlsey. “We believe investor appetite for bond ETFs will continue over the coming decade, spurred by the income needs of ageing populations and increased awareness of the many benefits that ETFs offer.”
