Wednesday, July 8, 2020 - 11:00 am to 11:30 am EDT Five Lessons for ETF Investors from the Covid-19 Crisis Focus: ETFs

2020 has been a difficult year on numerous fronts, and the ETF industry has faced its own set of unique challenges during the crisis that resulted from the Covid-19 pandemic. During this presentation, Steve Hawkins will go through some things we have learned in the first six months of 2020, including examining key investment trends that have appeared in the wake of Covid-19 and some hard lessons ETF investors have had navigating market volatility, particularly in fixed income and crude oil. He will also provide some education on how investors can potentially improve the way they use ETFs by understanding their mechanics and potentially optimizing their usage during periods of extreme market volatility.
