The article regarding ETFs is most enlightening (see Tony Rumble’s Boarding the ETFs boom) but there is one aspect which does not seem to be discussed. What are the counterparty risks associated with these products or funds? It might be interesting to identify any other risks that exist and how one might quantify them and where more information might be available.
Thanks for the many invaluable ideas received from your reports.
Tony’s response: The ETF story was designed to be a discussion of recent ETF trends and likely developments in the ETF market going forward.
