On Air, Tuesday 25th April
Investing in ETFs to navigate uncertainty

Inflows into exchange-traded funds have been on the rise as low cost passive investments gain wider appeal among UK investors. These passive vehicles are still a relatively new offering so advisers will want to gain an understanding of what ETFs are and how they offer diversification in a portfolio through exposure to a range of asset classes, from commodities such as gold, to currencies and more thematic investments.

FTAdviser has put together a panel of experts to discuss how to use ETFs in a portfolio and the macroeconomic factors driving investor inflows into ETFs.
