Total ETF assets now stand at close to $1.4 Trillion with over $115 billion assets under management in the U.S. Actively traded funds listed for trading in US markets total more than 1400 in mid-2012. Many investors are looking to exchange-traded funds these days as an alternative to owning individual stocks and mutual funds as the asset class continues to expand.
According to Ashmead Pringle, President, GreenHaven LLC, “ETFs can be cost-effective, tax-efficient, liquid, and transparent and it is no wonder ETFs have enjoyed such rapid growth, growth that is likely to continue as more investors, large and small, discover their benefits.”
On September 12th, panelists will debate ETF investing and forecast the international growth for 2012-13 as well as discuss their benefits over mutual funds and how different ETF products are being structured.
