Tracking Efficiency in European ETFs

LISTEN AGAIN: What is tracking error and how important is tracking efficiency for successful ETF investing?

Holly Cook 27 February, 2013 | 1:13PM

Each month, Morningstar's European ETF research team presents a free webinar on investing with exchange-traded funds.

The February webinar took place on Wednesday 27th at 3.00pm and the topic was "Tracking Efficiency in European ETFs".

In the free online event, Morningstar analyst Al Kellett defined the terms 'tracking error' and 'tracking difference' and talked about why they are important. He also presented the results of Morningstar's study into the tracking efficiency of a sample of ETFs and introduced a new Morningstar data point for measuring tracking efficiency, Estimated Holding Cost.

If you missed the opportunity to pose your questions to Al Kellett during the live event, why not listen again and hear what others had to say?
