Nontraditional index strategies are redefining the ETF space, making up an increasing percentage of assets with stronger growth than the broader space. The language defining the category, however, is undisciplined, with an array of labels that lack precision. Irrespective of labels, professional investors are increasingly assessing and adopting these strategies, with a focus on product design and implications for use.

This webinar will address the economic theories, investment practices and portfolio construction developments that are propelling this trend. It will also examine the real-world investor needs that are driving innovation as well as potential applications of these strategies.
