The New York Society of Security Analysts is partnering with ETF Global to hold a one-day conference – Exchange Traded Product Investing & Trading.
Experts from the private and public investment sectors will discuss developments in exchange traded products on 20 September 2013.
Exchange-traded products (ETPs) have proven to be a valuable component for investors’ portfolios, ranging from the most sophisticated institutional money managers to novice investors. ETPs generally include exchange-traded funds, exchange-traded notes, exchange-traded commodities, exchange-traded currencies, as well as some other specialised products. As with any investment vehicle, to optimise the benefit from ETPs, investors and traders must understand and use them effectively.
The one-day forum is designed to assist sophisticated financial professionals to further evaluate the opportunities and pitfalls of investing and trading exchange traded products by arming them with practical applications. The programme also helps finance professionals identify and analyse emerging trends within the ETP industry. After the conference, there is a one-hour cocktail reception to meet some of the day’s speakers and network with fellow attendees.
The agenda features these presentations:
• Dynamic risk management
• Quantitative ETP selection
• Portable alpha with ETPs
• Fading and emerging ETF trends
• Impact of the Jobs Act on active ETPs
• Options on exchange-traded products
• High frequency trading: are flash crashes a way of life?
• Expert panel: the increasing role of ETPs within the fixed income markets
