[Webinar] The Gist of ETFs Trading

New Seminar


ETFs are one of the fastest growing investment products in the world, transforming the way investors access financial markets and construct investment portfolios. Until relatively recently, ETFs were popular mainly in the U.S. and Europe. However, the appeal of trading low-cost, efficient and liquid funds is rising among investors in Asia. As investors increasingly use ETFs, this seminar will explore how to select and trade the right ETFs.


By the end of this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Select ETFs across different jurisdictions using the Total Cost of Ownership framework
- Understand how to assess the “real” liquidity of ETFs
- Understand the associated risks of ETFs


- The implicit and explicit cost of ETFs
- Assessing the “real” liquidity ETFs
- ETF trading “best practices”
- Risks associated with different ETF structures

Who should attend

Investment professionals, risk and compliance professionals, portfolio managers and traders, wealth managers and product specialists
