ETFs and Systemic Risks During Market Stress
Maureen O’HaraJoanne M. HillPhD
The innovative structure of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) has made it simpler and cheaper to invest in a wide variety of asset classes, but what does their growing importance mean for market stability, liquidity, and performance?
In this webinar, Professor Maureen O’Hara — co-author of the CFA Institute Research Foundation brief on ETFs and Systemic Risks — will examine the effects of ETFs on systemic risks in financial markets, with a special focus on the current market disruption from COVID-19. She will also explore the regulations, rules, and mechanisms in place to help mitigate risk. Hear Professor O’Hara’s perspective on what other rules are needed, and which rules need to be eliminated, to further reduce risks and support market stability.
