Event Details

ETF Asia Forum 2017, 30th March, 3-6pm LATTICE80

Over the past 10 years, the proportion of funds invested in passive strategies has been steadily increasing. Take up of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) has been gaining traction and globally, there are now more funds in ETFs than managed by hedge funds. While the ETF market in Asia-Pacific has grown steadily, it still lags behind Europe and is further still from the US market.

ETF Asia Forum is an interactive half-day event for industry players to discuss strategic issues on ETF take up in Asia, in view to leverage on the fintech boom and foster growth in the industry. The event will be held at fintech hub, LATTICE80 and provides a unique opportunity for the meeting of ETF and fintech minds. Learn about the latest innovations in ETF, how fintech can accelerate ETF take up, market developments and opportunities across Asia with a specific focus on the Singapore market.

Who should attend?

Buy and sell sides, financial advisors, consultants, ETF service providers, asset allocators and exchanges. Regulators and fintech players with sights set on growth in the ETF market should also attend.
