Initiative: The Schwab ETF OneSource 2016 ETF Industry Outlook
Today, ETF investors hold 21% of their portfolios in ETFs, and that number is expected to reach 25% by 2020, according to Charles Schwab’s 2015 ETF Investors Study. Responding to growing interest in this product, Schwab collaborated with 13 ETF providers to create the ETF OneSource 2016 ETF Industry Outlook—a detailed and interactive resource for ETF investors and advisors, featuring data, market perspectives and actionable insights.
The online resource covers 14 topics, including sector ETFs, finding income without bonds, managing volatility, strategic beta and active ETFs. The site offers data-driven coverage of 2015 trends, outlooks for 2016 and implications for investors.
As part of the launch, Schwab hosted “ETF Week,” a series of five media conference calls discussing perspectives on important trends for advisors and investors in the year ahead. Using the hashtag #ETFOneSource, the site generated conversation on social media among journalists, fund sponsors and participants in the advisory industry.
