Book Description

23 Aug 2012 Financial Times Series

Since the first edition of The Financial Times Guide to ETFs was published in 2009, the number of ETFs in issue has doubled and ETFs are now common both on investor platforms and increasingly amongst financial advisors. This massive increase in demand has highlighted an urgent debate – just how dangerous are ETFs and how much do investors and advisers understand about the structure of the index tracker?

 

The second edition of this book attempts to answer this debate and is the indispensable bible on trackers for professional advisers and serious private investors.

 

This new edition also features a chapter based around the theme of Due Diligence and a new chapter on How to use ETFs and Index Funds for theLong-term, as well as a new Jargon busting section and a-new appendix looking at new ideas beginning to emerge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. 27 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for anybody who want to learn about ETFs. It is very well written and the firstly type of this book for the UK consumer. At last we have somebody who offers a balanced view on synthetic ETFs which are far more efficient in terms of tracking error with no more (or even far less) counterparty risk than physical ETFs which engage in stock lending.
