WE ASIA PACIFIC | ETF Lifecycle Education Series
ETFs & Indexing: A look back before looking ahead
 

WE Asia Pacific was delighted to welcome WE members to the first event in our education series exploring the full lifecycle of an ETF.

The invention of indexing has changed the world of investing by offering investors a low-cost, diversified and highly transparent approach to gaining broad market exposure. It has also led to the tremendous growth of ETFs over the past decade. As of end 2015, global ETF assets had reached more than USD 2.8 trillion. So before looking ahead, we took a look back on the phenomenal history and development of ETFs and refreshed our understanding on how they have evolved into such a powerful investment vehicle.

Our distinguished speakers included:

  • Shelly Painter, Regional Managing Director for Vanguard Asia, who shared with us the evolution of indexing and how it has impacted the growth of ETFs globally. 
  • James Martielli, Head of Portfolio Review for Vanguard Asia, who discussed the case of indexing for Asian investors. He also elaborated on the basics of ETFs, including how ETFs work and trade.
  • The event concluded with a presentation by Jessica Wu, Investment Analyst for Vanguard Asia, on the outlook for the global economy and markets in 2016.

Many thanks to all who attended. It was a pleasure to host you!
