CEO interview: passive management – spotlight on ETFs

Over the past decade, ETFs have emerged from the shadows and now are an element of most investment portfolios, whether retail or institutional. Now mainstream, what trends are next for ETFs? Do they face renewed competition from a resurgent active management sector? How did ETFs cope during the highly volatile period during the Covid-19 crisis, especially around price divergence from the AP, and liquidity challenges? Was there a rush to exit, or a calm “hold” approach from investors? Will Luxembourg capture greater market share as a preferred domicile for ETFs?
