An overview of ETF Capital Markets, the main stakeholders and how they interact with ETF issuers, exchanges and investors. In this session we will provide an overview on how ETF primary and secondary markets performed during recent market volatility as well as a look under the hood of a relatively unknown and sometimes misunderstood element of the ETF ecosystem.

Panel Discussion points:

  1. The liquidity provider/market maker business model – interaction with the exchanges, investors and ETF issuers, misconceptions (recent reports of profit from high spreads)
  2. Hedging risk during market dislocation – a recap on the recent market turbulence in some FI and Credit funds (hedging tools, inventory management)
  3. Influences on setting prices –  (Asset class, time zone), managing risks associated with holding inventory during recent volatility (eg limit down SPX Futures)
  4. Primary market issues – application and redemption process during high volatility and low liquidity, minimum basket sizes and other mechanisms to increase liquidity.
