Event Description

ETF Masterclass
28 October 2020
Trainer: Mr. Tariq Dennison

This workshop is eligible for 7 CE hours


Overview :
The ETF Masterclass is an intense one-day workshop focused on building a practical, actionable understanding of the diverse and growing world of exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Global ETF assets have grown exponentially in recent years, from less than US$1.5 trillion in 2010 to over US$6.4 trillion in 2020, and now track not only stock market benchmarks, but fixed income, frontier markets, and a variety of active strategies, including hedge fund strategies.

This workshop begins with a high level overview of the mechanics of ETF setup, management, and trading. Second, we survey the world covered by ETFs across different exchanges, asset classes and strategies. Next, we cover some key concepts, features, pitfalls, and misconceptions about ETF liquidity, usage, and international taxation. Finally, we wrap up with several practical examples of ETF portfolios for different kinds of investors, and how these portfolios compare with traditional fund portfolios or direct index benchmarks used by the world’s top pension funds.

Course Outline :

•   Understand what ETFs are, how they work, and what problems they solve

•   Become familiar with the global markets and asset classes that can be traded or allocated to with ETFs

•   Examine best practices and mistakes in ETF trading, liquidity, and managing international taxation
