ETFs are the cutting edge

“If you want to stay at the cutting edge and you are not using ETFs, you will be left behind,” says wealth manager AJ Bell’s head of passives Matt Brennan in an interview with ETF Express this week. Well, it doesn’t get clearer than that, and this from a firm that only moved over to ETFs within the last two years.

ETF news shows no sign of slowing down for the summer this week, with former ETF Securities’ products and teams dominating. We have an interview with LGIM’s head of ETFs Howie Li on their new ETF launches and plans for the future and news from WisdomTree Europe as they reshuffle and rationalise the products that came with their purchase of part of ETF Securities. 

Over on our sister title, Wealth Adviser, we have news of our first webinar in association with Algo-Chain, ‘Demystifying the ETF: learn how to create model portfolios with ETFs’. You can register for the webinar here.
