In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panelists from ETF Securities and S&P Capital IQ discussed ETFs.
How much risk is there with exchanged traded products?
The debate in the ETP market has focused heavily on risk in the last 12 months, but just how much risk is there in the sector? Is the risk purely based on the underlying index risk or replication risk, or is counterparty risk still an issue.
And how should this risk be analysed in the context of the risk related to active fund management?
This Conjecture debate looks at the risks and the opportunities related to exchanged traded products and drill down to examine the differences between ETFs, ETNs and ETCs, to give the listener a rounded overview of some of the key issues.
The debate was hosted by Lawrence Gosling, editorial director of Incisive Media, and a columnist of Investment Week
