Chicago Booth Alumni Club of Chicago

November 20, 2011: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Please join us in welcoming Nick Manley and Gary Cwik, portfolio consultants from Invesco PowerShares, one of the most prominent sponsors in the ETFs market. Not only will they discuss certain basic elements of the creation & redemption of ETF shares, Mr. Manley and Mr. Cwik will present on the expanding breadth of ETF offerings now available. ETFs have evolved from simply tracking traditional broad-market indices like the S&P 500 to the current environment of offering more intelligent "investable" indices. For example PowerShares offers ETFs that track 'fundamentally weighted' (as compared to capitalization-weighting) indexes, certain factor-weighted indices etc. With this range of products in the market today, investors can implement more intricate tactical trading strategies, augmenting their traditional cap-weighted strategies.
