NEW YORK, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Expense ratio cuts at the major ETF providers and accelerated ETF inflows have highlighted what has been a strong year for the ETF industry. With this in mind, on Monday, December 10, 2012 at 4:15PM, S&P Capital IQ is hosting a webinar titled "ETF Analyst Hour: The Past, Present and Future of ETFs: A Look at 2012 Trends" focused on several of the most important ETF-related themes in 2012 and what investors can expect in 2013.
This webinar is the latest in S&P Capital IQ's monthly ETF Analyst Hour series, and one hour of CFP continuing education credit is available to attendees. Interested attendees can register here:http://event.standardandpoors.com/content/ER_Webinar_121012_ETF_REG.
"Despite potentially higher taxes, dividend-themed equity ETFs should continue to garner attention," explains Todd Rosenbluth, ETF analyst. He adds that interest in fixed income ETFs should continue to remain strong into the New Year, as investors hunt for yield through products with low cost structures. Rosenbluth, one of the architects of the firm's proprietary ETF research and ranking methodology, will lead the discussion on the 10(th) and will also share S&P Capital IQ's thoughts on:
-- ETF inflows and outflows
-- New ETF launches
-- Top and bottom performing ETFs
-- Expense ratio changes and their effect
-- Potential areas of growth in 2013
-- New tools to meet the growing client demand for ETFs
Anthony Hohmann, ETF product manager, will moderate the discussion and highlight S&P Capital IQ's ETF research methodology and ETF model portfolio performance.
Following the presentation, the ETF research reports of the ETFs discussed will be available to all attendees. The ETF reports are originally published on S&P Capital IQ's MarketScope Advisor platform.
