ETF Investing During the Return of Volatility
With central banks tightening liquidity, trade tensions cropping up, and a weakening synchronized global growth story, the period of just buying simple market-cap ETFs may be coming to an end. How can investor use passive vehicles to navigate the changing tide? Should they avoid volatility ETFs or use them as a hedge? Should they try to time the market through ETFs based on the economic cycle? Are currency-hedging ETFs dead? Or will rising turbulence usher in a flight back to active management?

Are ETFs the Silver Bullet for Investors?
ETFs have been increasingly used as buy-and-hold funds by institutional investors. Should they be used as tools for tactical asset allocations as well as trading instruments? Should investors use ETFs rather than futures contracts to avoid rolling costs, or ETFs to avoid liquidity issues in markets like fixed income? This panel debates the pros and cons of the ETF phenomenon as a smart investment for the long term.

Institutional ETF Trading: Changing Perceptions about Liquidity
This session will introduce the results of Risk.net's second annual ETF trading survey, which captures feedback from nearly 300 buyside traders from institutions globally. How are institutional traders changing their perception of ETF liquidity and how are they executing ETF trades? This year's report also puts a spotlight on MiFID II and its impact on trading and liquidity.
Head of Institutional Sales & Trading, Europe, Jane Street
Why is European ETF trading so far behind the US?
MiFID II brought transparency on trading, a move that many hoped would fuel ETF growth in Europe. Most ETF trading on this side of the Atlantic takes place between institutions on off-exchange venues. Europe has the infrastructure for ETF trading to take off, but relatively muted interest from institutional and retail investors alike. What could make this change? And who is afraid of systematic internalisers?

One-on-one Interview: Fixed Income ETF
Smart Beta and Factor Based ETFs
Smart-beta has made life difficult for stock pickers but it has yet to compete with bond managers, whose active funds have avoided outflows. Will factors become as big a thing in the fixed income side as equity? Would investors use factor based ETFs as alternatives to traditional active investment strategies?

Investor Outlook on Theme ETFs: Next Big Thing or Fad?
ETFs are well known for efficient diversification - blockchain, marijuana and robots are all a part of the ETF universe now. Do theme ETFs actually make sense as part of a portfolio and what sector and country ETFs might have higher concentration risk? How do you evaluate a theme ETF for its value, and how durable are these themes likely to be over the long term?
