  • Rationale & history of ETFs

    ETFs track an index, and there is a huge range of indices. They have much lower 'expense ratios' (that's how the management fees are named for ETFs). Join Gontran as he explains the reasons for using ETFs along with their historical developments.

  • ETF Creation process

    Market-makers are the only market participants authorised to create units with ETF fund managers, but they have to get the ETF shares from the fund manager. The way they do this is through a creation/redemption process. This video helps you understand the creation/redemption processes, along with their benefits and disadvantages.
