BNY Mellon is to feature Steve Forbes (pictured), chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media, as the keynote speaker at its annual ETF symposium in October.
The symposium will focus on important issues in the ETF marketplace including the emergence of non-transparent active ETFs, the validity of fixed income ETFs, market liquidity and the impact of new regulations.
Among the industry thought leaders scheduled to present at the event are Deborah Fuhr, co-founder of ETFGI, and Kathleen Moriarity, partner of Kaye Scholer.
This is the fourth year of the symposium, which highlights best practices and strategies for registered investment advisors, sponsors, investors and other participants in the ETF Industry.
"The ETF Symposium is designed for registered investment advisors and other financial professionals who use, or are interested in using, ETFs as part of their investment strategy," says Steve Cook, business executive, structured product services, for BNY Mellon. Cook, who will moderate the opening panel at the symposium and provide an overview of the ETF marketplace, adds: "We also believe the symposium will help investment professionals gain insight into the way their peers view a range of topics such as balancing active and passive strategies and how ETFs can provide efficient access to a wide range of asset classes."
