On 2 December, will do something it’s never done before: Host a live “virtual” conference.  This event --- the ETF Virtual Conference for UK Advisers --- brings a full day of ETF education straight to the desktop of advisers.

The event is shaping up to be spectacular. I’ve been on the prep calls for most of the panels and the content is simply great. I can’t wait for it to begin.

Here are the five key reasons you should register to attend today.


Reason #1: Complete ETF Education, Completely Free

We’ve convinced some of Europe’s leading ETF experts to participate in the conference next week.  From topics like ETFs 101 through Building An ETF Portfolio, ETFs vs. Trackers, The Case For & Against Smart Beta and more, the day will provide a complete introduction to everything you need to know to become a successful ETF investor.

And don’t worry if you can’t stay all day: If you miss a session for whatever reason, you’ll be able to watch it later on-demand.

Day by day, more advisers and investors are converting to ETFs as a core building block for portfolios.  Do you want to be ahead of the curve or behind?

Register today.


Reason #2: Marc Faber

Marc Faber is a live wire.  The legendary investor and author of the Doom, Gloom and Boom Report is one of the sharpest minds you’ll ever encounter.  Fortunately, he’s delivering an hour-long keynote address for us on 2 December at 12:30, offering his latest views on the markets and where to place your bets. 

It’s not often you get to hear from Dr. Faber speak in-depth.  This is one session you’re not going to want to miss.

Register today.


Reason #3: Practice Management Insights

Even advisers with the best ETF-focused ambitions can find themselves stymied by platforms that don’t allow you to effectively trade. One of the panels I’m most excited for is our “ETF Practice Management Panel: From Platform Selection to Trading & Execution,” taking place at 14:30.  We’ve got three real experts there and my colleague, Rachael Revesz, promises to push them hard for insights on how to trade, where to trade and how different platforms are adapting to the ETF market.

Reason #4: You Can Stay In The Office

The benefit of being 'virtual' means that you can watch it in your own time from your office or home - and, in addition, it's CPD accredited.

Reason #5: Attend The Virtual; Get free flight, hotel & registration for our Amsterdam Conference

Our goal with the ETF Virtual Conference is to turn everyday investors and advisers into ETF experts. We figure, once you’re an ETF expert, you’ll be hooked.   At the very least, I’m certain you’ll want to dig deeper into the space by attending our physical event, Inside ETFs Europe.

Inside ETFs Europe is the largest ETF conference in Europe, and takes place each June in Amsterdam. The event features 2.5 days of action-packed sessions, killer keynotes and great parties.  Last year’s conference hosted noted keynote speakers like Sir Ranulph Fiennes, George Papandreou, Rick Ferri and more.

We’re offering a select number of adviser attendees at the ETF Virtual Conference free registration– including complimentary travel from London on ‘ Airways’ and hotel - to attend Inside ETFs Europe 2015, 8-10 June, in Amsterdam.

Register today by selecting the ‘pay by phone’ option or contact Conor Ó hAonghusa at [email protected] for further information on how to qualify.
