Smart Beta

September 2016

ETF Report started in 2000 as a newsletter focused on ETF investors, making it the very first ETF-centric publication in the market. Since then, ETF Report has blossomed into a monthly magazine for the growing community of advisors who use ETFs in their clients' portfolios.

In each issue, ETF Report shows advisors how they can improve client outcomes and increase their business with ETFs by interviewing the leading ETF strategists and asset managers in the industry. Subscribe now!
