In this episode, we had the pleasure of catching up with ETF Industry veteran Chris Hemstead, now Director of Institutional Business Development at IndexIQ, part of New York Life Investment Company. Chris reflects on last March’s market meltdown and how ETFs performed during this tumultuous period. He also shares his optimism about the growth of the ETF market and the potential for innovative product development such as actively-managed ETFs. Finally, Chris explains how active management can pick up nuances overlooked by pure passive-based approaches to portfolio construction, such as in the area of ESG (Sustainability) Investing.
