Giving financial advisors, institutional asset managers, traders, and other investment professionals the information they need to get the most out of EFT opportunities, the Bloomberg Visual Guide to ETFs covers the subject in a highly visual manner. Starting with an introduction to ETFs, the book looks at where they fit within the world of investment products, how they are structurally differentiated from other products and among themselves, relevant tax considerations, global listings, growth on a global basis, evolution of the product set, and other topics. Also looking towards the future, the text provides information on finding ETFs-including fund searches, fund news, measuring and valuing ETFs, evaluating their correlation to the underlying sector or commodity being tracked, and more. As a result, the book is a resource not just for understanding EFTs today, but for taking advantage of whats to come.
