Inside ETFs Canada has gone digital and we’re bringing the most exciting content, specialized networking, and latest product launches right to your home screen! Inside ETFs Canada has opted to partner with Eventfinity this year to give you a one-of-a-kind viewing experience. This year’s content is new and fresh – covering all the latest market innovations and trends within the Canadian ETF space. Erin Wolfe, Conference Producer, Inside ETFs Canada gives the low-down on the new event below.
After such an unpresented and challenging year, how have ETFs fared? Where have the inflows and outflows been? With the presumptive win of Joe Biden, how should we expect the economy to respond? In uncertain times, we need tangible answers and our cast of industry leaders are looking to offer some much-needed insight.
Steve Hawkins of CETFA kicks off day one with positive projections in the ETF space, followed by an in-depth review of the year by Women in ETFs. WIE’s Tammy Cash leads a panel of top female panelists, including Kalee Boisvert of Raymond James, Vivian Hsu of Fidelity, Sucheta Rajagopal of Mackie Research, and Dina Ting of Franklin Templeton, in discussion on how the NAV deviations in volatile markets have affected trading and how using ETFs has insulated client portfolios from concentration risk.
In addition to all the exciting content this year, Inside ETFs Canada offers several opportunities to book meetings and reconnect with the industry.
We round out day one with Brian Levitt of Invesco who discusses the major themes that will remain the same in the space regardless of who wins the presidential election.
Day two and other areas of discussion
As we begin Day two, Philip Lawlor of FTSE Russell will give us an overall outlook on what’s to come for Canada. Then Todd Rosenbluth and panelists Mike Philbrick of Resolve Asset Management, Tyler Mordy of Forstrong, and Martin Lefebvre of National Bank of Canada, round out the conference with insight into the global macro trends we should see into 2020 and beyond.
Another area to note is the ever-evolving landscape of ESG. ESG is a rising topic within the industry that can leave investors perplexed as it addresses the right kind of investments they should be making. How do we quantify these assets? How do we choose the right assets to add to portfolios to meet investors social and financial goals? Are the investments we’re making SRI, ESG, or Impact Investing and how do you tell the difference? Luckily, Inside ETFs Canada is bringing you the best minds in the ESG space to help answer these very questions. Join us on day one with Martin Grosskopf of ESG as he explores the evolution of ESG, and the potential growth opportunities associated with these products.
Later in the day, Pat Dunwoody of CETFA leads a panel discussion with Judy Cotte of ESG Global Advisors, Guilermo Cano of MSCI, and Linda Ma of National Bank of Canada as they dissect the different areas of ESG and help us to understand the specific classifications surrounding these products. Day two continues with an ESG focus and a panel led by Anita Sharma of BNN Bloomberg with Margaret Dorn of S&P Dow Jones Indices, David O’Leary of Kind Wealth, and Mary Hagerman of Raymond James who will explore the best ways to integrate these products into client portfolios.
With the presumptive win of Joe Biden, how should we expect the economy to respond? In uncertain times, we need tangible answers and our cast of industry leaders are looking to offer some much-needed insight.
To round out the program we will be talking the latest innovations within the ETF space as well as the technological advances that are key to building your practice. There are so many new and innovative products coming to the ETF ecosystem. Day one hosts an exploratory presentation on ETF Innovation with Trevor Cummings of TD Asset Management and how breaking product paradigms may be the key to creating custom indexes. Our second day continues with a presentation by Renato Leggi of Ark Financial Investments who will elaborate on the latest developments in innovation and provide provocative research conclusions for the coming year.
Our event also features a panel presented by Davis Janowski of WealthManagement.com in tandem with experts Jeff Gans of Purpose Advisor Solutions, Clive Cholerton of Quintessence Wealth, and Robert Di Iorio of RBC Dominion securities, to review the key pieces of technology you will need for your business and how best to integrate these systems to provide a more user-friendly experience for clients.
