How Much of Your Physical ETF is Out on Loan?

Listen again to today's presentation on the benefits and risks of securities lending and what your due diligence should involve

Holly Cook 8 August, 2012 | 6:53PM

June's very popular webinar was a frank discussion by several of our Iberian colleagues on the state of the Spanish economy and the future of the eurozone. This was followed up in July with an in-depth explanation of the portfolio role of commodities, the historical performance of this asset class and appropriate exchange-traded products for gaining exposure to ‘hot’ commodities.

Now, in August, we've turned our attention to the finer details of physical ETFs. In today's webinar, Morningstar senior ETF analyst Hortense Bioy discussed five key topics regarding the securities-lending practices of physical ETFs.

Topics:

  • What is securities lending?
  • How much of your physical ETF is out on loan?
  • Counterparty risk in securities lending
