2016 Agenda Highlights

Risk & Reward: An Investor's Guide to 2016

Today's markets offer more questions than answers. When and how will the Fed act? Are we entering a bubble? And what crises will rock the investment world in 2016? ETF.com assembles the smartest macro minds to discuss where to invest, and how to deliver the strong returns clients demand.

Smart Beta: A Foundation for Every Portfolio?

The use of smart-beta ETFs is no longer up for debate; they've gathered assets and proved their worth. But questions remain: How big of a role should they play, and what's the best way to deploy these innovative funds to capture returns and protect against market drawdowns?

Fixed Income on a Knife's Edge

We have entered a new age of fixed income characterized by low inventory, new regulations and rising rates. How markets respond is a challenging question. Hear fixed-income experts from across the ETF industry share actionable ideas to stay liquid, profit and protect your clients' portfolios during our first live fixed-income round table.

ETFs 2.0: Disruptive Technologies

ETFs have enjoyed a fairy-tale rise to stardom, suffering few bumps along the way. They have weathered market uncertainty and outright crashes, only to gain even more assets. But are there threats on the horizon? Could new innovations surpass ETFs?

The Great Emerging Market Debate

Emerging markets are no longer the shining star they once were, but do they still belong in your portfolio? In this session, our superstar panel will explore all avenues of the emerging markets, helping investors to better understand these complex markets and profit from those nuances.

Robo Reboot: Don't Compete, Co-opt

The rise of robo advisors has been positioned as a major challenge to financial advisors. But could embracing robo technology actually position you for success?
