Markets in Focus
Global equity markets posted a positive return for the fifth consecutive quarter in Q2 2021. Progress on vaccinations around the globe and reopening of economies were a strong impetus for upward move. Factor ETFs also saw increased flow with a total of USD 50 billion flowing into Yield, Value and Low Size ETFs, amongst the strongest inflows year-to-date.
Join this webinar as our experts discuss factors and indexes performance and look at whether there is a signal in the flows into ETFs and if it has been profitable to go with the flow.
Starting this quarter, we are broadening the scope of this webinar to share insights from latest market trends and themes in addition to factors. So as a special topic in this webinar, we will discuss how equity derivatives linked to ESG and climate indexes could have a pivotal role to play in managing risks and opportunities in equity portfolios.
