Paris –13 March 2014 – Euronext, a wholly owned subsidiary of IntercontinentalExchange Group (NYSE: ICE), today joined CF&B Communication, creator and organiser of the European ETF Event, to announce their second European ETF Event, to be held in Paris at Espace Pierre Cardin on March 18.
The European ETF Event brings together members of the financial community for a day of in-depth analysis and discussion.
The first event, held in 2013, drew over 200 ETF promoters, institutional investors, asset management companies, brokers and index providers for a comprehensive look at this fast-moving market and its growth and investment prospects. In 2014, the day will focus on European issuers, market makers and specialised investors.
Pedro Fernandes, head of Exchange Traded Products at Euronext, will open this year's forum and moderate the first round table on ETF liquidity and trading. A second round table addressing macro-economic trends will analyse economists' investment recommendations by asset class, geographical region and business sector. A third featuring market makers will close the morning session.
In the afternoon, a first session will focus on SPDR — “a winning model for Europe”— followed by a panel on scope for ETF growth in Europe, particularly with individual investors. The day will end with a round table on socially responsible investment and a workshop on different ways to use ETFs in a portfolio.
The day will include many opportunities for one-to-one meetings and discussions.
