For ETF providers, there are opportunities abound in the ever-wider world of alternatives. Ilan Israelstam, head of strategy at BetaShares, says alternatives are an important way to diversify exposure in a portfolio, as they have historically been shown to outperform in market conditions where other asset classes have performed poorly. “They also act as a strong inflation hedge, as prices tend to rise at the same pace as consumer goods, offsetting any loss in income as a result of inflation,” he points out.
Directed at a very focussed institutional audience in the Asia-Pacific region, ETFI Asia has an average qualified circulation of 5,169 for the 6-month period: March 2013 to Septmeber 2013.
