ETFs continue to capture the hearts and wallets of investors in Canada. Assets under management in the industry reached about $114 billion at the end of last year, compared with $89.5 billion at the end of 2015. Beyond ETFs' low cost, they offer your clients access to diversified portfolios of securities from around the globe that previously were available only to high net-worth investors. But as the ETF market has grown in size, so, too, has product complexity. In our ETF Guide 2017, we look at how ETF providers and other organizations are helping financial advisors learn about these new products. We also explore the worlds of sector and niche ETFs, and offer sample portfolios put together by ETF analysts.
