Podcast Episode 11: ETFs — good or bad?
Posted by Robin Powell on March 8, 2017
The subject of this week’s TEBI Podcast is the ETF, or exchange-traded fund.
ETFs have been all the rage in recent years, soaring in popularity all over the world. In the US, a total of $124 billion has poured into ETFs in the first two months of 2017 — the the most aggressive start to a year since the industry was founded 24 years ago.
I’ve been talking to Nizam Hamid, European ETF strategist at WisdomTree, to get his perspective on a range of issues:
What are the advantages of using ETFs?
With so many products now available, how do investors find the ones they really need?
How can the industry play a part in educating consumers about the importance of investing for the long-term?
And is the ETF become the go-to investment vehicle of the future?
