ETF and Index Funds Report
The Summer 2011 issue of Investor Economics’ ETF and Index Funds Report provides extensive coverage of the fast-growing exchange- traded fund (ETF) segment, and tracks the progress of index mutual and segregated funds. Our ETF analysis looks at the segment from a number of vantage points, including asset class, underlying investment, investment strategy and distribution channels.
This report features updated information on the ETF holdings on the core retail platforms (full-service and online/discount brokerage), including rankings of the most popular ETFs for both Canadian- and U.S.-listed products held by Canadian retail clients.
Meanwhile, the analytical views of the index fund segment include tracking of the mutual funds that “wrap” ETFs, a fairly new sub- category of index funds that make ETFs available to a wider audience of advisors who operate with an MFDA license and have no immediate access to the stock exchange.
