The New ETFs (CAASA0018)

1.0 MFDA: Professional Development (8814)
1.0 FP Canada: Financial Planning (8814)

This course was produced for CAASA’s Wealth Managers’ Forum featuring Richard Laterman, ReSolve Asset Management, Robert Duncan, Forstrong Global Asset Management, David Stephenson, CIBC Asset Management, and Jaime Purvis, Horizon ETFs. Asset management has created many innovations over the years but perhaps the most long-standing (and Made in Canada!) and widespread is Exchange Traded Funds and their brethren. Starting as TIPs (Toronto Index Participation receipts) on the TSX35 and then HIPs based on the TSX100, these have evolved to a state, now, where there are more ETFs than listed equities. Adding to this, the new liquid alts rules allow leverage, shorting, and extensive derivatives use (it actually encourages the third one) and asset managers were quick to add to their quivers.
