On the programme ETF – Forum der Experten, fundinfo‘s Alexander Ehmann, Sales Manager for Europe, had the opportunity to present the platforms www.fundinfo.com and www.etfinfo.com in great detail. During the interview with Bernhard Jünemann and Thomas Meyer zu Drewer, the advantages and opportunities of these two platforms were presented and discussed in relation to today’s challenges in the fund industry.
fundinfo is moving to new offices at Staffelstrasse 12, Zurich, on Friday 20 June 2014.
Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) are typically managed passively and are therefore associated with fees that are lower than those of actively managed funds. ETF managers seek to construct a portfolio that replicates a benchmark index.
How do investors and professionals gain a quick overview in the ETF market? Hinder Asset Management AG puts the answer in a nutshell in its newsletter: “One ETF comparison website, in particular, that we can currently recommend to Swiss investors is etfinfo.com: Here, up to five different ETFs can be compared in one go at the press of a button.
The Internet is a key source of information for many investors seeking to invest in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). The www.etfinfo.com platform has developed by leaps and bounds since it was launched back in early 2010: In addition to regional expansion and the launch of new universes for Europe and Asia (soon to be followed by Singapore and Hong Kong), the number of available products and data fields has also increased significantly. The database currently contains well over 1,000 ETFs with just under 2,000 share classes of more than 20 ETF providers from Europe and Asia.
The Internet is an important source of information for many investors seeking to invest in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). Unfortunately, however, most Internet portals are extremely unreliable sources, as evidenced by an article in the Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger. The spot checks presented in the article reveal etfinfo.com to be among the very few reliable online sources of information.
