This week resident mixologists, Chris Versace, Chief Investment Office and Lenore Hawkins, Chief Macro Strategist headed to New York City where they met with Yasmin Dahya, Head of Americas Beta Specialist team at JP Morgan Asset Management to talk about the evolving world of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
By the end of 2017, more than $2.5 trillion dollars had been invested in ETFs around the world. As those investment vehicles have increasingly gathered assets in the last few years, we’ve seen the world of ETFs evolve from simple, passive funds that reflected standard indices such as the S&P 500 into ones reflecting specific trends such as cyber security, or commodities such as wheat and corn, giving investors a growing set of investing tools to use in their portfolios. As you’ll learn from Yasmin, this world is continuing to change and bringing with it more exciting ways for the individual investor to build a portfolio that reflects their wants, needs and view of the world.
For anyone who is interested in using ETFs in their portfolio, this is one you don’t want to miss.
