2020 Inside ETFs Conference

Last year Matt Hougan and Dave Nadig shocked the conference audience with their assertion that direct indexing was the next big thing—an “ETF killer.” Were they right?

This year Parametric attempts to answer that question. Our CEO, Brian Langstraat, will lead a session titled “Who’s Afraid of Direct Indexing?” In it he’ll tackle the myths and misperceptions of direct indexing, why it can coexist with ETFs, and how advisors can use custom direct indexing to grow their practice and strengthen their client relationships. 

Plus, Jeff Brown, director and institutional portfolio manager, will sit down with WealthManagement.com’s Diana Britton for a session on the nuts and bolts of self-indexing. And of course we’ll be on hand at our booth to give you a tour of our Custom Core® platform, including our Benchmark Builder, ESG Screen Analyzer, and other advisor tools. We hope to see you there.

Is direct indexing coming for the ETF?

Parametric’s CEO, Brian Langstraat, guested on Bloomberg’s Trillions podcast to explain what direct indexing is, whom it’s for, and why it may not be the “ETF killer” some have called it.
