According to John Lunt, co-founder of ETFEA, “ETFs are transforming investing. They have become an essential investment tool for professionals and for individual investors.

The online courses cover the evolution and features of ETFs, the fundamentals of indexing, ETF based asset allocation, smart beta, and ETF trading among other topics. They draw on the industry expertise of the promoters.
