S&P Dow Jones Indices to join the next series of ETF Forum roadshows


The ETF Forum, the independent partnership of  ETP providers created in 2016, has announced that S&P Dow Jones Indices (S&P DJI) will join the next series of adviser roadshows, which kicks off on 6 June.

S&P Dow Jones Indices is the largest global resource for essential index-based concepts, data and research, and home to financial market indicators, such as the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

The company will be joining the next set of seminars, presenting alongside existing members BMO Global Asset Management, ETF Securities, WisdomTree, and the London Stock Exchange. S&P Dow Jones Indices will seek to provide a perspective on the adoption of index-based solutions worldwide and will discuss how their experience with US-based advisors can be applied in the UK.

The roadshows, which begin in Exeter before moving across the UK to locations including Glasgow, Jersey and Manchester, are free to attend and are CPD-accredited, providing an educational overview of ETFs for attendees.

A wider variety of topics will also be included in the next series of roadshows, including how and why ETFs have been adopted in other global markets, such as Canada and Australia.

Nizam Hamid (pictured), WisdomTree ETF Strategist and spokesperson for the ETF Forum, says: “We are delighted to have S&P Dow Jones Indices on board for the next series of adviser roadshows. After a successful first year, we really wanted to provide added value to the adviser community, and by having such a prestigious and established global name joining us, we feel we can take ETF education to the next level. S&P DJI is known for its market leading indices and we hope their focus in this area will help advisers understand and develop ETF usage.” 
Last year, nearly three-quarters of attendees (72 per cent) said the ETF Forum had changed their desire to include ETFs in client portfolios, and almost 90 per cent said they anticipate using lower cost funds for their clients in the next two years.
