About This Event

Passive investment solutions such as index funds and ETFs are indispensable tools for many investors. They are useful for long-term provisioning, for steady portfolio building, or for tactically participating in market developments. Index investments are transparent and cost-effective - thanks to fierce price competition among providers. And they are on the road to success. ETFs attracted more capital last year than ever before, and the number of new issues also rose to a record high.

Many of the latest index investments come from three areas: they follow a rules-based strategy, they take into account environmental, social and good governance (ESG) criteria, or they are focused on a specific investment theme, such as infrastructure or the cloud business. Passive financial products offer a wide variety of options, as they can be used to map any clearly defined strategy. The choice for investors is diverse.

Explore the potential of passive solutions and discuss with top-class experts at the Finanz und Wirtschaft Indexing Forum.
