Panel Discussion ETFs: physical and synthetic building blocks

About this Event

Total AUM growth of non-US ETFs has been relatively high. However, ETFs in Europe have yet to make significant inroads with European and Asian investors. Advantageous fiscal and regulatory environments have contributed to the popularity of US ETFs. This needs to be replicated in Europe.

For European ETFs to fulfil their potential, it will require careful calibration across the European ETF ecosystem. From ETF producers and distributors to the market makers, the capital market teams within the issuers, and most importantly the national regulators. Taken together, the EU UCITS badge and the UK’s Reporting Fund Status for offshore funds are a compelling imprimatur for global investors seeking to invest in European ETFs.

Hansuke Consulting is delighted to assemble leading practitioners in the field to cover the following:

  • ETFs uptake during the crisis, high expected returns
  • How ETFs can be scored, different jurisdictions; are they tax efficient?
  • Broader trends - what is driving growth & attraction?
  • Is tax the next challenge, and has it been mastered?
  • ESG agenda - tax performance, screening, governance; How strong are your ESG credentials?
  • Lack of data and transparency
  • Regulatory obligations on wealth/investment managers, tax status of overseas funds
  • Active ETFs and search for alternative sources of alpha
