Markets are continuing to rise, ETFs are continuing to be launched – all apparently in defiance of the fundamentals. This pandemic of ours has cost us dear but the markets and, to some extent, investors seem to have shrugged it off.

This week’s ETF Express newsletter brings you launches which seem to reflect this odd dissonance with an array of new products in the most topical of sectors, cybersecurity and biotechnology, from First Trust, plus a buffered outcome launch from those masters of risk over at AllianzIM. We also have news of a new launch bringing us a centrally cleared Bitcoin ETP.

Kevin Carter at EMQQ has seen it all with his emerging market technology ETF – not always in a good way – and is enjoying quite the run at the moment. Meanwhile, the nervous have turned to gold – a rich vein that has run steadily through investment return news over the past few months  and we have the World Gold Council’s latest figures for record breaking gold ETFs.

There’s something for everyone in all of this but on top, we have The Investment Association reporting, a bit like the BoE report last month, that ETFs provided liquidity during the market crisis. 

Meanwhile, we have confirmed speakers for our etfLIVE North America Digital Summit in October. Please follow this link for more information…
