The National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM), the trade group representing investment advisors dedicated to providing above-average returns to clients through active trading strategies, is announcing its first ETF Symposium to be held November 1 and 2, 2007, at the Hyatt Rosemont, just outside Chicago's O'Hare Airport.

Some 40 percent of our members now use ETF's in their portfolios, and that number is growing. This is the first time we will, together, be sharing our knowledge for successful investing in this dynamic investment vehicle.

    The two-day ETF Symposium is a response to the growing impact of exchange-traded funds in investment portfolios, and investment advisors' using these vehicles to increase returns while holding down costs for their clients. With over 500 ETF's now trading, and new ones continually issued, investment advisors will share their knowledge of how and why to trade ETF's to maximize returns.

"This, we believe, will be the first symposium of its kind, where advisors and brokers can learn various aspects and benefits of ETF trading," said Victor Vuskalns, NAAIM president and principal of Tango Capital Management LLC. "Some 40 percent of our members now use ETF's in their portfolios, and that number is growing. This is the first time we will, together, be sharing our knowledge for successful investing in this dynamic investment vehicle."

Speakers include executives from NAAIM's National Sponsor ProShares ETF's, Claymore Securities, Van Eck Global, Fimat, Trust Company of America, Rydex Investments, Sarasota Capital Strategies, PMFM, Inc., and Cambria Investment Management. Presentations will review numerous ETF trading strategies and tactics, including trading cost efficiency, using dynamic-indexed ETF's for alpha-generating returns, achieving commodity exposure, implementing execution algorithms, the art and science of back-testing ETF's with short trading histories, and many other topics.
