Are exchange-traded funds (ETFs) a danger to the stock market? Or a natural progression driven by the needs and wants of institutional investors and their clients? One thing is certainly true: inflows into ETFs, index funds and similar products are increasing month on month. In April 2018 alone, passive US equity funds took $18.2 bn of inflows, while active funds suffered $11.4 bn in outflows.
In a bid to understand this investment discipline, this IR Magazine Webinar, held in association with Bloomberg, will aim to find answers to these questions and more with the aid of our panel of expert speakers.
This webinar will look at:
• What ETFs are, how they work and why inflows are increasing
• Understanding index investor behavior, and whether the term ‘passive’ is accurate
• The role of ESG and other themes for passive fund managers
• The tools you can use to examine the investment decisions made by passive funds
Speakers include: 
Short, sharp and packed with expert insight, this webinar will get you up to speed on these critical issues in just 30 minutes. Sign up to BrightTALK to view this essential briefing and be informed of future webinars produced by IR Magazine.
