The theme is the thing

Thematic ETFs prove ever popular and ETFMG have taken the thematic theme to their collective hearts, as it were, with their launches which span marijuana, cybersecurity and video game technology. Four of their thematic ETFs are now available through the E*Trade platform commission free. Read our interview with ETFMG’s Robert Saffer to find out more.

Meanwhile, Allan Lane of Algo-Chain returns this week with his opinion on the many ESG indices and ETFs available out there. He links the subject with the best sign of the times and a new generation – the one that takes its tent back from the festival site. However, he has a warning for index providers who leap on the ESG band wagon.

And ESG, of course, truly perennial as ever, rears its head again with a study from Societe Generale which reviews all things ESG or SRI. Read our summary in this week’s newsletter.

Voting closes for our US ETF awards at the end of August: please make your final votes here.
